Beginning with an examination of the historical tools and methods of the animated form and other camera-less methodologies, the course explores the development of the medium, its relationship to the cinematic form and the direction in which the form is going as the analog and digital arts begin to converge.

Course Requirements:

Knowledge of time-based media practice; familiarity with Mac-based computing is preferred but not essential.

Intended Audience:

Students interested in digital media practices and alternative approaches to short-form narrative and experimental practice.
