Animated Comedy Series
Create your own animated comedy series!
Students will learn basic animation skills using Adobe Animate (formerly Flash), as well as animated comedy writing concepts, and improv comedy exercises in this class designed for all levels including a basic beginner.. You do not need to be good at drawing to be funny-- you may choose to work with simple images such as stick figures, or collage cutouts. Students will have the opportunity to meet and work with local comedy actors, or perform their own scripts. In this class, each student will come up with an idea of their own through class exploration and exercises to create their own an animated web series, and write and animate a segment of the pilot episode. Students can choose to work individually or with a partner.
