Continuing Education . Pre-College Classes 2017
In this course students will gain knowledge of industry-standard techniques, terminology, and how to work in a professional production pipeline.
We will focus primarily on the production of two-dimensional animation, exploring story-boarding, visual development, animation and post production. The final assignment will be a group project. You will learn to communicate effectively with your team and watch as ideas come to life. You will leave this course with a demo reel and an animated short for your portfolio. This class is highly recommended for anyone who wants a better understanding of how to create animated films or hopes to enter the animation industry.
Our 2017 session has ended. Please check back for more info on our 2018 session.
