ARTD 250 - 2D Digital Animation

3 credits
See your digital drawings come to life as you learn the fundamentals of classic 2D digital animation.  This hands-on 2D digital animation course is intended as an intermediary class in the history, techniques, principles, pre-production, and production of traditional and computer animation.  Students will create digital animations on their own tablet PCs using industry standard software.  The principles taught in this course are the foundation for all other mediums of animation.  All class work will help the students build a stronger professional demo reel.  Exercises include the bouncing ball, overlapping action, character design and animation of jumps, walks, performance, lip-synch and storyboarding.  For the final assignment, students use these principles to animate their own character design. Prerequisite(s): ARTD 185
