Biomedical Art: Interactive Narratives

Course No. BMA359  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Thomas Nowacki

This course serves as an introductory platform to investigate and discover object, environment, human and natural science 2D/web-based animation, in addition to basic interface design, to create a narrative with goals to communicate a message and/or educate and instruct the viewer. The student will use the concept of narrative to tell animated short stories of the body, environment and/or natural science through the medium of Adobe Flash (using AS 3.0) in conjunction with Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and Dreamweaver. Within the course, strong conceptual skills are emphasized and developed through professional production techniques, workflow and time-based linear media. The principles of 2D animation and web-based interface design will be used as the foundation for understanding how to communicate a message. Learning the ideas of simplistic object, environment and body motion accuracy/timing will be taught in 2D and students will be expected to create simple to complex animations (based on level and individual progress.) This course is designed to benefit all majors AND non-majors with required prerequisites. Offered fall.
