Class Description: 
This freshman-level animation course focuses on gaining an understanding of the basic principles of movement, which form the foundation of all animation. Students analyze motions of people and objects, and learn to translate that knowledge into animation. Motion attributes such as gravity, weight, spacing and timing are studied, in order to create animation that is believable and that expresses mood and personality through a character’s individualized movement. Also discussed are various technical aspects of animation filmmaking, typical production workflows, and standard industry terms and tools. At the conclusion of this course, students will have completed numerous animation assignments, an inbetweening test and a final project that will demonstrate their fullest understanding of basic animation principles.
