A course in which students create simple sculptural forms and bring them to life by photographically recording their movements over time. Students learn to manipulate these sequences into short animated narratives using editing software. Students also learn to create and record their own sound effects in conjunction with audio software. The course is designed not only to introduce students to the world of animation as an artistic form, but also to provide them with the experience and skills to experiment with artwork digitally in a time-based aesthetic approach. Students meet artists and engineers working in animation and digital media.
