Acting for Animators

This course explores the importance of acting and gesture to create emotion and characterization in 3D animation. Students will study acting techniques that are relevant to animation, learn posing and timing methods, and gain the ability to approach animation using acting as a reference tool. Through the study of film, in-class presentations, and acting exercises, students learn to convey nuanced yet purposeful emotions through facial expressions, gestures, and movement. Students will develop their own ideas into an animated project based on their research throughout the term. Students are expected to cover the cost of supplies, estimated to be between $0 and $15.
