Animated Comedy Series

Animated Comedy Series


Create your own animated comedy series!

Students will learn basic animation skills using stop-motion (Hue Animation Studio) & Adobe Animate (formerly Flash). You will also learn animated comedy writing concepts, and participate in improv acting exercises led by our guest comedians. This class is 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. Each student will design their own characters and create super short animations, which can act as stand-alone videos or be developed into a comedy series. We will have special guests speakers come to talk about comedic performance as well as pitching your ideas to networks.
