This is a creative, semester-long, non-programming course where students will learn how to model 3D objects and characters as well as how to animate them to create Pixar style creations. In doing this, students will be introduced to storyboarding, traditional stop motion animation, and cinematic elements such as framing, lighting, and mood. No previous technical or artistic skills are required, but experience sculpting and a basic understanding of geometric space (x,y,z coordinates) is helpful. We will use the Blender 3D modeling & animation tool and all work will be done on the lab computers. Students can, however, use their own laptops if they choose (Mac or PC).
