Art 255 Two-dimensional Animation I

Studio introduction to principles and processes of two-dimensional animation composed in digital form. Storytelling and animation skills are developed in projects that apply tools and techniques for writing, staging, movement, timing, key framing, editing, and the use of sound and music. The language and aesthetics of animation are investigated through the design and production of a two-dimensional animation. Focus may be placed on either pixel or vector graphics. Project planning and workflow are explored in response to technical requirements for presenting the work in multiple media delivery formats. Open to Non-majors. Recommended preparation: Art 115 and Art 119 or Art 120 (expected of art & art history majors).
