Digital Animation

Animation is a medium not a genre! This course will give a deep grounding in the methods and principles of traditional animation. Throughout this class you will view short films, experiment with a variety of techniques, participate in group discussions, and create a number of short films of your own devising.

What you will learn in this workshop:

  • Expanded knowledge of the medium of animation and all its potential.

  • Understanding of the technical processes involved in creating cel based animation. Ability to analyze movement and convey emotion and meaning through a series of drawings.

  • Grounding in the process of creating a finished work from start to finish. This process will include idea gathering, writing, storyboarding, roughs, iteration, finals, and critique.
