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.

Description

You may intend to have your movie discovered at Sundance, Tribeca, the Black Maria or even our local Rhode Island International Film Festival. Or perhaps you want to craft a killer reel that will buy you your own production company. The methods are different but the objective the same -- to find an audience and catch their attention. With that as the overarching theme of this production studio class, students undertake a self-directed project -- a short narrative, a documentary, a traditional animated work or a 3D modeled animated piece. All aspects of creating and combining picture and sound are considered as your instructor takes on the role of chief critic. From the score to the end credits, all details are considered, including distribution and presentation options.

Special Schedule: Class meets every other Saturday on 3/11, 3/25, 4/8, 4/22, 5/6 and 5/20.

Applies to: AN-E

Prerequisite: Animation ll: Narrative, Editing Movies on the Computer or equivalent experience

Students first learn about the settings and functions of their digital cameras, as well as the basic techniques of shooting digital photos. Each week, we photograph various subjects and review and critique each others' images. Using scanners and Adobe Photoshop, we import our images into Macintosh computers and learn how to manipulate various elements before printing, offering endless possibilities for special effects. Note: Bring your digital camera and either a disk of Photoshop images or a photo CD to each class.

Description

Discover how photographers manipulate natural and artificial light sources to achieve a painterly color palette and the illusion of sculptural form, not to mention sharp detail, in their work. This course covers controlling and combining light situations, as well as using the creative potential of light to interpret and define. A variety of lighting conditions and tools are explored both on location and in the studio. Lighting set-ups, the use of available light, and metering techniques are all covered. Students learn about the creative use of lenses, black-and-white and color film, and how they are influenced by their lighting decisions. Still life, commercial illustration, portraiture and industrial applications are also discussed. Note: This course was previously titled Introduction to Studio Lighting.

Description

How do you capture images for later taming and computer-based editing and final revelation to your audience? This course introduces students to the newest camera technology that is quickly eclipsing the glory of film cinematography and evolving into a new and equally magnificent genre. Learn about the advantages (and limitations) of digital video for image collection as well as methods for encoding, compressing and storing your files. Basic lighting techniques and sound recording methods are introduced to add dimension to your moving images. Throughout, emphasis is placed on both the development of technical skills and appreciation for the aesthetics of mise-en-scene or pictorial composition for the screen.

Applies to: AN-E
