Programme Details

This course provides students with the advanced knowledge in principles of classical animation. The student will learn concepts such as squash and stretch, timing, path of action, anticipation, action-reaction, weight, volume, and staging. This course will also develop the student's animation design sense, with exercises in character design. The student will also learn technical skills to produce animation, such as how to flip and draw, and how to film animation using Light boxes & using punch sheets. Skills learned will be applied throughout the Digital Animation Program.

In Animation Basics, you'll go beyond software to learn how to realistically convey weight, motion and follow through critical skills on your journey to become a character animator. You'll start the course by learning how to animate a bouncing ball, and then evolve that bouncing ball through the creation of both vanilla and personality walk cycles.

Students will Learn How to:

  • Understand critical principles of animation like weight and overlapping action 
  • Understand critical principles of animation like weight and overlapping action

  • Convey emotions like joy, devastation and concern through sketchbook and posing exercises with our Stu rigConvey emotions like joy, devastation and concern through sketchbook and posing exercises with our Strig
  • Go beyond the bouncing ball by learning to express different weights
  • Understand overlapping action by animating motion and follow through using Squirrels, Monster Ball or Bird Ball 
  • Understand overlapping action by animating motion and follow through using Squirrels, Monster Ball or Bird Ball
  • Animate a simple and straightforward vanilla walk cycle
  • Create a stylized walk cycle to showcase personality and emotion.

I learnt how to programme games. It was a very interesting experience learning how games are made although it could be confusing but my instructors put me through. The last summer camp I attended has to do with academic work but this is different. I had fun and made new friends.
