Storyboarding & Storytelling Animation DDA-514
This course targets all areas of pre-production and design for computer animation in preparation for hands-on modeling and animation classes. The course focuses on the fundamental skills of design for computer animation beginning with basic conceptual scripting and storyboarding techniques and ending with the development of a complete technical breakdown ready to be animated. The art of storytelling is explored from logo treatments to character animation. Students should come prepared to draw, write, pantomime, analyze, and invent. By the end of the course, students conceive, design and execute their own storyboard for animation, including a technical breakdown of timing and strategies that can be applied in subsequent computer animation courses.
