Course Aims

This course aims to provide a basic understanding of the principles of 2D animation. Students will gain a broad overview of different techniques, principles and aesthetics, from the traditional to the digital. The course emphasises on learning through the physicality of the actual making process. Students produce creative works using a variety of techniques that include drawing frame by frame, cutout, rotoscoping and keyframing. They engage in a series of creative exercises such as intensive drawings, games and mime acting to explore the principles of animation, the human body, and storytelling. Critical sessions are held regularly to encourage open discussions and peer learning amongst students.
