About this course
The Animation Technology emphasis prepares students to work in digital 3D animation modeling environments. 3D Digital Animation is all about the art of visual storytelling. During this program, you’ll cover the in-depth fundamentals of classical animation based on the 12 Principals of Animation, as well as character development and rigging. You’ll also study life drawing, layout and design, computer illustration, storytelling and storyboarding. The student gains experience using industry standard software to produce animations and portfolios.
Students combine traditional artistic skills of drawing, design and sculpture with a touch of video, lighting and special effects training. The student combines these skills with their expertise in object modeling and computer generated animation techniques to produce complex 3D animation projects. Students develop skills for entry-level jobs in the fields of movie animation, gaming animation, and animation for commercials and presentations
