Students will conceive, design and develop narrative time-based digital animations from illustration. With applications in TV and advertising in mind, this course will emphasize the importance of effective story-telling, character and content development. A personal stylistic approach to illustration will serve as a starting point in developing a 4-D interpretation. Concepts such as storyboarding, frame stacking, tweening and easing will be taught within vector-based, programmatic animation using Adobe After Effects.
