CDAN203 Intro to Digital 2D Animation 3 cr.

This course serves as an introduction to various alternative animation techniques, with emphasis on how an individual animation artist might innovate ways to integrate continually emerging digital tools into his or her work. Software applications such as Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, Flash, Illustrator and After Effects are introduced and incorporated into assignments that include “old-school” animation devices and techniques such as Zoetropes, flipbooks, rotoscoping and multi-plane shooting. Additionally, Mini-DV, and digital still cameras, along with digital audio recorders are introduced. A semester-long, image-based digital animation will be produced, along with numerous shorter assignments. There will be portions of class time made available for workshop.

Prerequisites: CDAN-203 or by permission of instructor.
