This senior-level animation course is a continuation of 3D Computer Animation Motion Studies. Students further develop their skills, insights, and knowledge of character animation through more advanced assignments. Studies will involve animal movement such as advanced bipedal walks, runs and other forms of locomotion. Quadruped motion will be covered, as well as avian flight. Students gain insights into the relationship between storytelling and character animation, with emphasis placed on acting and performance, combining lip-sync dialog with characters in a specific activity or conflict. Students may be directed to environmental motion studies such as wind, water, fire, and smoke. At the conclusion of this course, students have completed a series of animation exercises, which are presented as a collection of finished animation tests.
