IANIM 3665 Props for Film & Practical Effects

In this course students will create believable and historically accurate objects and props to be used in live action film. A special or practical effect is a fabricated real-world tangible model used in conjunction with computer generated (CG) visual effects. Students will develop 3-d modeled objects, fabricate them using various substrates and materials, and create finished surfaces and textures for filming on set. Students will composite these practical effects with visual effects to enhance and supplement narratives.
