Each day we’ll view a variety of animations and behind the- scenes DVD extras, supplementing our education on the history of popular and underground animation. Hands-on lessons will begin with animating objects to mimic the laws of natural physics through principles like “squash and stretch,” and “anticipation.
The first week of the course will focus on building students’ understanding in the basic principles of animation, including using the interface and software, and creating a sense of time, weight in their animated object. The second week of the course will introduce story-boarding, with each student pitching their idea for the final collaborative project.
Topics that will be explored include using Adobe Animate and Adobe After Effects, story-boarding, animating facial expressions and gestures and human walk cycles.
