On Friday we launched a new range of courses at AFTRS to be run in 2009. More information can be found here.
Among the new courses are Graduate Diplomas in Game Design, Animation Directing and Virtual Worlds. The unique approach of these courses is to share core coursework in Directing Concepts and Skills, Emerging Media and Production Workshops with Directing students in Fiction and non-Fiction areas. We want to encourage experimentation, creation of hybrid forms and groundbreaking ideas that lie at the frontier where film meets games. Students in the year long course will all get to work on a major production project and will be able to complete electives in areas including Character and Performance, Script and Narrative Structure, Level Design, Story, Space and Performance, Character Design and others.
