This course is designed for students from all disciplines who want to explore the dynamic medium of animation while finding their personal style and vision. Basic animation concepts and techniques, such as storyboard, layout, extremes, timing, in-betweening, weight, squash-and-stretch, overlapping action, arcs, walk cycles and acting breakdowns will be covered through hands-on exercises and projects. Conducted as a creative workshop, students will concentrate on developing their own animated short. Emphasis will be placed on innovation, invention and experimentation.
