The class will be concerned with creating short animations utilizing two-dimensional imagery. Drawn, collaged, scanned, captured images and video footage will be manipulated with After Effects, Photoshop, and other software programmes. Original narratives, adopted stories, and historical references will be used for the animations. Various animators will be looked at. Students will produce a series of short experiments followed by a longer more sustained piece. Public showings will be required. Please note that this course may require additional materials to be purchased by the student.
