Using the simplicity of basic 2D animation, students will become familiar with Disney’s "12-Principles of Animation." Whether 2D, CG, or stop motion animation, these principles are the backbone for all character animation projects. Students will learn to use Key Pose Animation, Squash and Stretch, Anticipation, Staging, Lines-of-Action, and more to create several short animation projects and a final 10-15 second film.

Note: Prerequisites: Basic drawing and computer skills (Mac or Windows). Students must have a scanner for scanning pencil drawings or a Wacom tablet with a drawing program that can save JPEGs or PNGs. Basic movie-making software is free. Please see materials list.
