IMA201 - Animation & Storyboarding
This course covers the fundamentals of telling a story through movement and narrative visuals. Students will learn the basics of timing, point of view, and designing a sequence that can be translated into motion or graphic storytelling. The animation will focus on the basic principles of creating the illusion of movement through the sequencing of still images. Emphasis will be placed on basic animation fundamentals such as cycles, squash and stretch, anticipation/reaction, etc. Students will produce a short animation using a sequence of Photoshop images that are imported into After Effects and linked with sound. Final projects will incorporate the course fundamentals, starting with a storyboard and finishing with an animation that translates the board into a short piece that has a beginning, middle and conclusion.
