Level 1: Principles of Animation for Adults


This edition of Level 1 of the Animation Course is for adults. This purchase is for recordings, with graded assignments.

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 two 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. By the end of Level 1 the student will have created 4 animation projects.

Price includes $50.00 non-refundable registration fee.
