This course will explore how to create an animated short working in all stages of animation such as continuity design, layout, character development and soundtrack mix. Emphasis will be placed on timing, gesture and body language in animation. To develop and refine drawing skills, students will draw from the model. How to complete a short by adding soundtracks of voice-over actors, sound effects and music will also be addressed.
NOTE: Students will receive a license download of Toon Boom Harmony and Storyboard Pro for the duration of the course. Please bring a small sketchbook and a USB drive (8GB minimum) to each session. Lab time is included in the instructional hours; additional lab time is not available.

This course is fully online and offered through synchronous sessions during the listed course hours.
