Build a foundation for digital 2D animation techniques and begin to develop your personal animation style. You'll discover the technology that makes it all possible, as you’re introduced to the concept of the frame (animation's atomic unit), how it turns into a cycle, then a sequence and finally, a story. As a class, we'll review group exercises and student projects to develop a common understanding of what "good" animation looks like and how to discuss this exciting art form.

Great animated storytelling begins with a strong vocal performance that is paired with compelling character designs and credible lip sync. Expanding upon the rudiments learned in Animation: Introduction, students in this course initiate an original character design and enhance it with motion studies, expressions and lip sync practice. A lesson in audio recording technique provides the source monologue that students build upon as they give the talent a new visual identity that is designed, drawn and pencil tested using the Photoshop timeline. When to gesture, pause, rant or rave are all worthy of contemplation as students create the illusion that their original characters are speaking and behaving in a frame-by-frame world.
