How does animation really work? How do you create “life” from a series of static images?
You will learn the basics of animation through various techniques. You’ll create a flip book and zoetrope strip using pen and paper. Then we turn to the digital animation: you’ll make balls bounce, characters walk, and create burning fires. You’ll explore non-digital 3D techniques, like stop-motion using clay and/or objects. And play with pixilation using humans and objects. Bring your favourite clips and we will watch and discuss animation that inspires us! The course will culminate with everybody collaborating to make an ‘Animation Jam’.
