DDA-631 3D Animation Studio I: First Film

3 Credits

This course is designed to teach essential directing tools as well as the complete production pipeline for the creation of a 3D animated short. Students study the use of camera, editing, lighting, audio and acting as storytelling tools and create an animated short based on their own original story and character(s). Students begin with pre-production, create storyboards and produce, first, a 2D animatic, followed by a 3D animatic. The 3D animatic is revised and finalized until all animation is completed, fully rendered and treated in post-production. The process finishes with a screening of the final short films.
