Class Description: 
This freshman-level animation course focuses on the basic principles of movement that form the foundation of all animation. Students analyze the 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 covered are various technical aspects of animation filmmaking, typical production workflows, and standard industry tools and terminology. At the conclusion of this course, students will have completed numerous animation assignments, a midpoint test, and a final project that will demonstrate their full understanding of basic animation principles.
