Animation lies at the foundation of all moving image technologies and cultures. This hands-on course introduces a broad range of 2D animation techniques that are available to the animator in the digital age. Although new computer-assisted tools have made the animator's task more streamlined than it's ever been beforee there are many vn-front-of-camera and tactile techniques that have nothing to do with computers. Types of animation covered in this course include straight-ahead, key frame, stop-motion, rotoscoping and motion graphics as well as industry standard computer-based software.
