The class will be concerned with animating inanimate objects by stop motion, drawings, and cut out collages. A variety of filmmakers and techniques will be looked at during the course of the semester. Students will be expected to produce a variety of short projects followed by a longer more sustained project based on current events and environmental issues. Students will be instructed in using ‘Dragonframe’ Software, the Multiplane process, and video editing software. Experimentation with ways animation are presented will be undertaken; projection, web, etc.
