Students will cover animation basics of storytelling, movement, timing, key frames, walk cycles and developing personality. Students will begin with stop motion animation and rotoscoping and move into Adobe Premier for the bulk of the course. Students will consider how moving images have the power to transport the viewer to imaginary worlds and transform culture.
