Intro to 3D Animation: Character

Course No. ANIM 307A  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Anthony Scalmato | Pete Maric

This is an introductory course in 3D animation as an art form, with an intensive focus on of the use and development characters in animation. Successful animation breathes life into motion with clear communication of thought, emotion, narrative or experience. Any moving object is a "character" in film or animation. We will hold regular discussions and workshops on how the dialogue of an otherwise stagnant object changes and evolves when put to motion. Methods of instruction will consist of lectures, demonstrations, artist research, studio assignments, in-class lab time, and group critiques.
