Program Description:
OVERVIEW Hong Kong Immersion
The office of study abroad, with SCAD’s animation department, is pleased to offer Immersive Concept and Pitch Development for Animated Shorts. This unique offering is tailored to animation students, to grow an understanding of the research and development process of making a short film. Students will examine visual and narrative counterpoints with particular focus towards senior project and thesis candidates. The excursion will allow students to understand how to conduct location-based research that is key to the development of films. Students will further explore core components of experimentation by: learning how top production studios conduct immersive-based research; researching exceptional industry techniques for film development and production; discussing and workshopping creative ideation with the application of real-world studio’s roundtable process and gaining out-of-dorm experiences with cultural documentation for the development of successful (commercial and festival appropriate) student films.
