Animation and Digital Space proposes and explores the rich potential of animation, digital motion graphics and 2.5D and/or 3D digital environments as viable art mediums in contemporary art practice. This course will use a combination of live video capture, still imagery, green screening, rotoscoping, masking and digital animation techniques to manipulate, collage and build 2.5D digital spaces, concepts and/or narratives using After Effects. Following a sequence of technically-based exercises and thematic lectures, each student will create a video installation that uses the skills and concepts introduced in class.

Prerequisite(s): ART 231.3.
Note: Software to be covered: Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects. Photoshop and Illustrator will also be used in the building of assets. Software will be available to all registered students throughout the term in the Arts Media Lab (Murray 184). If students wish to use their own laptops/computers they will need to purchase a software license to run on their home device.
