Analyse The Requirements of The Task (1.1)

We have been tasked with writing an essay exploring how visual effects and animation has changed and aided the development of films.

After a discussion with my tutor, and based upon my interest in the Sci-Fi genre, I will  examine the development of visual effects in Sci-Film films and specifically within the Alien Franchise.

My tutor has advised me to research the influence of Ray Harryhausen and how he revolutionised visual effects and animation. I will examine how the development of special effects has effected the production of each Alien movie from 1979 – 2017, and how we have seen a move from more visceral effects to CGI.

When researching I will look at the development of special effects in science fiction films such as Blade Runner, Tron, 2001 Space Odyssey. To conduct my research I will use a variety of sources, such as books borrowed from the library as suggested by my tutor, magazine articles and online sources.

The title for my essay will be:
