Description

Punch it, pull it, make it move. Clay has a lot of character -- wouldn't Gumby agree? Join us to learn the secrets of frame-by-frame moviemaking, using clay as a medium to make moveable creatures, people and objects for an animated video. While relying upon traditional animation techniques at first to develop the idea, style the characters and put them through their paces, students work cooperatively to set their Plasticine players into motion to tell original claymation stories. They learn all aspects of the process, including storyboarding, camera operation, basic editing and sound design, resulting in a stop-motion animated film for family and friends to appreciate.

Description

Let's animate! This course exposes students to the many faces of animation which, at its core, is the art of creating the illusion of moving pictures. Whether it's one of the Totoros of Miyazaki, Disney's winter fairies creating poetry on ice, or the wacky instructional animations of Sesame Street, animation is an art form that wears many masks. As you learn the computer-based tools (including Adobe Photoshop) that make the illusion of movement possible, you'll begin to understand visual storytelling and composition for the screen. At the end of the course, you'll leave with animated movie clips that are proof of your first experience with animation.
