History and Principles of Animation

This course introduces students to the history and techniques of animation. Lectures and demonstrations use the Twelve Principles of Animation as a springboard into deconstructing the visuals of both animated and live-action films. Students learn to address issues such as planning a scene, thumbnailing, understanding traditional animation techniques, and to improve their draftsmanship. Executing basic animation tests, sketchbook development, and working towards completing an animated walk cycle are critical elements to this course. Students are expected to cover the cost of supplies, estimated between $15 to $20.
