Animation programme in my university offers me the chance to test boundaries and look at animation in many forms and in many ways. It also requires me to work on practical projects where I will understand the need to collaborate, analyse and communicate my ideas and intentions. I have a great deal of opportunities to develop my communication and presentation skills via my animation works.
This comprehensive programme enabled me o take a critical look at culture and the mass media. It looks at how media products are produced and circulated, and put this in the context of the wider society we live in and the different cultures we belong to. I learnt about photography, newspapers, film, documentary and the internet, and also how these relate to broader issues like glocalisation, consumer culture and new technology.
