The basics of building a more complex hand drawn animation of a figure through multiple animation passes will be explored along with the art of animation to dialogue and sound. You will also create an original short animation to experience the entire animation process including storyboarding, sound editing, creation of an animatic, and finally, animating itself.expand collapse
