Course Description:

In this introductory course, students immerse themselves in the theory and practice of 2D animation. The emphasis is on the experimentation, critical thinking and narrative structure for the sequential moving imagery in the realm of two-dimensional environments. A clear understanding of the recognized principles of 2D animation, and their inseparable relationship to the art of storytelling will be introduced in this introductory course. A good understanding of motion, timing, and sense of observation will be critical in this class. Compositing, sound editing and topics in motion picture production will be introduced at a less intense level. The course also emphasizes artistic and aesthetic creativity and familiarizes students with the notion of digital asset management (DAM). The assignments may include simple 2D image-based visual narratives, unambiguous reconstructions of realities, or more abstract compositions exploring natural phenomena, texture, light, and other formal or spatial elements.
