This course is an introduction to the basic principles of animation and audio design in support of animated narrative. Students will learn to communicate personality, emotions and behavior through several short animated motion assignments with appropriate soundtrack design, culminating in a short animatic or animated short as their final project. Students will develop their visual language to create a memorable impact on their audience. Animation history and a survey of current practitioners approaching the art form in diverse ways will be presented. Various conceptual, aesthetic and technical approaches to the medium of animation will be explored in this class. Students will have the option of images being created inside or outside the digital realm with all project post-production taking place using digital software.
