Short-term international mobility experiences for Australian animation students
The Los Angeles, Animation and Visual Effects Sojourn has been developed to further establish animation research and practice at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) within a global context. To date, QUT graduate outcomes in animation have seen students predominantly focussing on placement within the local animation industry with very little research or practice occurring internationally. This localised focus has stunted the capacity for graduate outcomes in the field and limited undergraduate exposure to the wider research and creative activity occurring beyond the Australian sector. By establishing an annual sojourn to the creative and cultural hub of animation and visual effects, students are exposed to the wider animation community and shown the global research and vocational opportunities that await them after completing their undergraduate study. This paper reflects on the 2015 LA Animation Sojourn, identifies key strengths and weaknesses in the initiative and provides recommendations for future overseas short-term international mobility experiences.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
