In this six-week class, take the traditional animation techniques that Walt and his team used daily with pencil and paper, and move them into the digital world. Learn skills and software using Toon Boom to create hand-drawn animation on the computer. This class will focus on introductory-level animation exercises and is designed for students with little to no animation experience. Class assignments will be split into three weeks of physics-based animation and three weeks of character animation.
