2D animation is a valuable art form as it allows artists to have a wide range of creative freedom. Even though 3D animated movies tend take over the box office these days, 2D computer animation is the popular choice for creating TV series, commercials, and mobile gaming. The software needed to create professional level work in 2D animation is affordable and becoming increasingly more accessible to individual artists and small animation studios. In this course students will learn the 12 Basic Principles of Animation that many successful animators use to captivate their audience, as well as how to storyboard and create a concise story using a variety of approaches to creating 2D animation. Students will have opportunities to explore traditional hand drawn animation, rotoscoping, and techniques in computer animation used to create shows like Bob’s Burgers and Adventure Time.
