While all creative animation has elements of innovation, experimental animation is sometimes purely exploratory. Students will work independently and in teams exploring different experimental animation techniques by completing a series of short exercises including cut-out, pixilation, and stop-motion. Other exercises will include storyboards, lighting design, sound design, and After Effects. Final projects will be produced in groups. Students are expected to spend a minimum of 24 hours a week (and probably more!) outside of class working on assignments. No prior art or media production experience is necessary, just a desire to learn the art of animation.
