Intro to 2D Paper Animation

Intro to 2D Paper Animation


Experience the artful world of paper animation with guidance and instruction from award-winning animator Jeanne Stern! Students will be immersed in the world of animation and learn the principles of animation and produce a short film encompassing their work.

Students will shoot digitally on a 2D surface with handmade paper cut-outs and additional elements such as magazines, clay, sand, or objects. In addition, students will use Hue Animation kits to shoot animation directly onto iMac computers and edit on creative software platform Adobe Premiere Pro.

At the end of the course, students will have completed a short animation film using the techniques learned in class.

Films completed in this course are eligible to be featured at multiple ASoF student exhibitions, including our Official SXSW (South by Southwest) Film Community Showcase. Details on submission deadlines will be given to those who register at the end of the course.
