Abstract

To a large extent computer animation has been technology-led and has progressed independently of both conventional animation and live action film and video production. It has thus not benefited from the substantial body of knowledge built
up by these more traditional methods. This applies particularly to characterisation within 3D computer animation.

Computer animation, however, no longer exists in isolation. It can be used to convey narrative in its own right and increasingly it is being used together with live action film, television, and/or video in the search for visual and audio effects not possible through the use of a single technology. The experimental activity has been focused on integrating sound and image from video and computer to produce a
personal piece of video art in the form of a narrative fantasy. Issues which spring from this are discussed and critically analysed: the level of technology required, and the creative issues of audience perception, narrative and characterisation when applied to such varied models as actor and computer generated object.

The research is presented in two parts: the video narrative with integrated imagery and this thesis which reflects upon the issues outlined above.
