The class will be concerned with manipulating two dimensional imagery, creating three dimensional forms and models by utilizing the laser cutter and Illustrator, and finally animating forms, drawings, objects combined with the three dimensional world using tracking cameras and a green screen. We will be moving backwards and forwards between creating worlds and manipulating these worlds, creating images to animate and animating them. The animations will be created using After Effects, Photoshop and Dragonframe. Original narratives, adapted stories, historical references will be used for source materials. Various animators will be looked at. Michael Stradley will be embedded in a portion of the classes. Registration: Students should email firstname.lastname@example.org to state their interest.
