ART 0245 - Animation II


Credits: 3

This studio course will transition away from traditional animation to work created with open source and licensed software in animation and computer graphics.  Students will learn comprehension of digital software through lesson explorations and projects.  Formats of storyboarding, character development, story structure, sequence, and motion will be expanded upon in this course.  Proper workflow habits will be established to complete short animated films, and the use of a graphics tablet will be required.  Concepts staging, visual hierarchy, the language of moving images, and audio will be understood in relation to current and historical animation.  Students will also explore methods of social media interaction, and posting projects on the web.
