Animation is a medium that breathes life into concept through movement. As an Animation student you’ll discover how the dialogue of an otherwise stagnant image or object changes and evolves when put to motion. You will create narrative and experimental animation that bring both characters and environments to life. Our integrated curriculum focuses on sequential narrative storytelling, methods of animation, conceptual development, framing and staging, storyboarding, animatics, layers, and motion and figure studies.
As a student in our program, you will work with innovative production technologies in 2D and 3D digital media and animation, film, video production, and stop-motion animation. To enhance your skills in character design and set construction, you will study the development of personality in motion, lighting of small scale digital environments, sound related to motion and sync, and the broad scope of tactile sculpture media. In addition, we emphasize presentation and public speaking skills, which help prepare you for pitching your ideas and directing a team.
