IANIM 4465 Animation Senior Studio 1

This course is the first of the 2-part Senior Studio, in which students create and complete a personal animatic. Senior Studio 1 emphasizes pre-production, conceptual development, narrative structure, story-boarding and pre-visualization. Students will develop and produce experiential time based narratives utilizing visual language and audio soundscape. The course will culminate in the production of a 120 second Animatic that contains an intended narrative with clearly conveyed mood and emotion that is supported by timing/pacing, a complete scratch audio track, colored backgrounds and may include character design. Students will complete post-production of their animatic in Senior Studio 2. The duration and pacing of this course mimics the expectation of Animation studios in the the professional world. A final grade of "C" or better is required for IANIM 3500 Junior Seminar in order to enroll in IANIM 4465 Senior Studio 1. Failure to meet the minimum grade requirement may result in having to retake IANIM 3500 before enrolling in IANIM 4465.
