TAC: Level 1

 

 

     

 

 

12 - one hour long sessions: Meeting online through Adobe Connect

 

The main goal of Level 1 is to introduce the student to the concept of animation.  Not merely making something move across the screen, but rather making something come to life.  We learn how to do this through The Principles of Animation, ideas and concepts that were identified and written down by 2 of the original Disney Animators.  Each week we will examine and explain one principle and then put it into practice as the student will have an assignment to create their own animation during the week (3-5 hours per week).  By the end of Level 1 the student will have created 4 animation projects.

 

Level 1 can be experienced in any form of animation (hand drawn, computer, etc.).

 

Topics covered through the class:

  • The Principles of Animation

  • Traditional Hand Drawn animation

  • Computer Generated animation

  • Joint critiques of student work

  • Animation History

  • and much more

 

There is free animation software available, but you will need access to a computer that will run it or if you would like, you can choose to run your own software.  All you need to do is be able to show your animation in a video.

 

Cost:  $300 (You can reserve your spot with a $50 registration fee)

Ages:  11 to 18 (Adult Age Classes are available by separate recordings - contact us directly for pricing)
