CDAN215 Stop Motion Animation I 3cr.

Stop-motion animation covers a vast array of techniques, skills and history.
We will discover underlying common principles through screenings, demonstrations and exercises.
Since students don’t have access to the 300 person, three year production schedule that a
stop-motion feature requires, we will learn effective strategies to make more with less. Most
assignments will require students to isolate production elements and explore multiple paths to
solutions. Emphasis here will not be on product, but on process. Therefore it will be expected
that various paths may reveal failed strategies. The point will be to gain broad experience
rapidly. It is expected that students will learn skills needed to produce expressive and engaging
stop-motion animated pieces.

Prerequisites: MPFV101 or CDAN-200
