-this course will be geared towards those who have a basic understanding of animation and want to improve, not those who are complete beginners. I won’t be taking the time to teach you how to use a program or what fps means.
-this course emphasizes freedom. You will be able to use the program of your choice and will normally choose the subjects for your animation.
-this is not an art course. In order to take part in this you must already feel comfortable with your style and art skills, and be able to draw a turnaround without difficulty.
-By the end of the course, small groups of students will work together to create a 20-30 second short film!
