This class focuses on establishing students in the fundamentals necessary for them to create their own animated stories and for them to be skilled enough to participate in animated productions with other students and artists. What we teach in this class is essential, even for students who have some experience making their own animations. You will learn about the animation production process and the different skills that work together to make an animated story come to life: character design, scriptwriting, storyboarding, animation, gesture drawing, and more. The content we will cover in this class has made the process of making an animated scene so much easier. This has been very helpful for even our advanced students who had been drawing for ten years and already had some animation experience. This is really important, even for self-taught animators who have never learned these core techniques and principles while they were figuring out how to animate. Several of the Animation Group’s best artists who started this class with advanced experience told me that the Fundamentals class gave them their biggest breakthroughs in skill development with the animation production process. This is a class experience that is relevant to beginner, intermediate, and advanced students alike.
