Advanced assignments in animation, lighting, rendering, simulation, camerawork, and the creation of animatics will broaden students' comprehension of the art of animation. The class covers concepts related to the visual, spatial, sound, motion, interactive, and temporal elements and features of digital technology for their use in the creation and application of digital media-based work. Digital cinematography will be addressed in lectures to help students achieve compelling compositions and camera animations. Students will gain exposure to the MASH motion graphics tool as well as multiple dynamic simulation tools including particles, fluids, and cloth FXs in this course.
