Upcoming lectures

Behind animation: How technology is changing the landscape of computer animation

27 November, 6:30pm for 7pm, Fusion Building, Talbot Campus, Bournemouth University.

Animation is a fascinating form of art with a long history. It creates visual pieces and stories beyond our real world and inspires generations. The merge with computing technology gave animation a new life and created the disciplinary branch of computer animation.

In this inaugural lecture, Professor Jian Chang, Professor of Computer Animation at Bournemouth University will give an introduction of the history of computer animation and related technologies, illustrating how this has developed to the present. He will then look at what the future holds, as technology is evolving and changing our definition, production and consumption of computer animation.
