Hand-drawn Animation (MA2217.01)

John Crowe

Fundamentals of 2-D animation principles will be explored through drawing, from basic motion cycles to more nuanced straight-ahead movement and emotion. Students will primarily work with wet/dry mediums on paper, with additional instruction in Dragonframe and After Effects compositing workflow. Weekly exercises will explore a variety of animation techniques to create short projects. Screenings, critiques and demonstrations parallel regular viewings of student work.


Learning Outcomes:
Students will develop a knowledge and understanding of the scope and application of a range of principles associated with animation practice.

Apply techniques, workflows and methods associated with hand-drawn animation, primarily hands-on drawn straight ahead and keyframes.

Develop post-production animation workflows- compositing, sound recording, and mixing skills.
