ANM 120 - Animation II: From Motion to Film (3 credit hours)

Offered in Winter Term (3-0-0)
A continuation of Animation I. Students will be asked to further explore the fundamental methods, practices and principles of animation through various mediums. Acquiring skills for acting, character building, sound design and storytelling will be of the utmost importance. As a result, students will begin to address the making of complete films, from concept to post-production. Weekly assignments and experiments will continue expanding each students' understanding of basic animation concepts; a true understanding of these concepts will demand a certain level of refinement where the 12 basic principles of animation are concerned. In order to properly exhibit a complete understanding of these concepts, students will be required to develop, create and present a final animated short in a medium of their choosing. Lastly, students will delve deeper into the post-production process, and will continue the use of various software programs, including, but not limited to, iMovie, Photoshop and After Effects. Upon completion of this course, students will possess the aesthetics, design abilities and time-based skill sets necessary in order to succeed in the animation industry.
