Course Duration
3 Months

The objective of a 2D animation course is to equip students with the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in the field of 2D animation. The course aims to cover a wide range of topics, including traditional and digital animation techniques, character design, rigging, and animation principles. Students will learn to create hand-drawn style character animations from scratch, using industry-standard software such as Toon Boom Harmony, Adobe Animate CC, and others. The course also focuses on developing proficiency in layout and cinematography for physical and virtual sets, as well as integrating 2D animation with live action. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to explore various animation careers post-graduation, depending on their level of commitment, skills, and demo reel.

Course Structure

Fundamentals of 2D Animation-2D animation can be an incredibly expressive and dynamic form of entertainment and artistic creation. It’s important to start with a strong foundation of the core principles and an understanding of how they relate to 2D animation. We’ll start things off by diving into the first set of key principles, including Squash and Stretch, Arcs, and Pose to Pose animation. You’ll get familiar with our digital tools and workflows using either Toon Boom Harmony or Rough Animator. You’ll start with a simple bouncing ball exercise to practice these techniques and tools.

The Mechanics of Weight-Showing weight is always important in animation. It grounds your work so that it still feels believable to the viewer, even when exaggerated. We’ll explore how to ensure your animation has proper weight and which drawings are most critical to getting that idea and feeling across. Problem-solving is a constant part of the animation process and in this session, you’ll explore some of the tools we can use to make your work stronger.

AFundamental Concepts of Animation-Using the concepts, tools, and techniques from the previous two sessions, you’ll animate our Squirrels rig performing a bouncy jump.

Autodesk Maya is a widely-used and advanced software for creating 3D animations and other aspects of the animation pipeline, such as modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, lighting, and rendering. This module will concentrate on different areas of 3D animation, including character creation, set modeling, character setup, animation principles, rendering, lighting, and look development. By the end of this module, students will have the skills to design and animate their own characters.

This module guides student to create his/her portfolio in graphics design guided environment with our instructor.
