From Pencil to Mouse: The 21st Century Animation House

Research Report and Studio Production

 

Introduction 

Studio projects were designed to generate data relevant to the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) for levels 3-6, and therefore were 'staged' to match levels of ability from fundamental and general through to complex knowledge and skills. These levels of ability were derived from job advertisements in Animation and Production Management. 

 

The work spanned across all stages of production from concept development through to post-production on a number of increasingly complex studio-based projects. The combinations of requirements in multi-skilling and progressive skill development are presented for inclusion in a relevant training framework.

 

The studio projects should be understood as driven by the research question, rather than by the artistic interests of the researcher.
