This 9 week mentorship class is centered around project based learning. You’ll complete 2 projects in this class, one dedicated to an animation assignment (ball bounce) and once dedicated to creating an original short film (visual essay). With the help of your mentor you’ll create these projects and learn more about design and animation principles.
Ball Bounce Project (Weeks 1-3)
Focus on animation principles, timing and spacing.
This 3 week animation assignment is a foundational exercise that every motion designer can benefit from. Animation is at the core of being a good motion designer so focusing on the craft of animation is important for students.
Visual Essay Short Film (Weeks 4-9)
Focus on storyboarding, design & animation.
This short film is a chance to learn about every stage of production. Starting with pre-production you’ll work through possible visual styles and create storyboards for your film. You’ll then design and animate the entire film with the help of your mentor with weekly critique and brainstorming sessions.
This class is devoted to the foundational building blocks of visual communication. Through a mix of lectures, assignments & case studies we’ll focus on the history and evolution of these disciplines and give you a solid foundation as a visual artist.
