Animation will introduce students to the basic tools and technology of Adobe Flash. Adobe Flash software is the industry-leading authoring environment for creating 2D engaging interactive experiences. Students will enjoy learning the technology that will bring their illustrations to life. Individual ideas will be taken from concept to script and storyboard to design and then to final animation. If taking this course, it is important to be very comfortable with illustration techniques. Projects will require excessive amounts of drawing on the computer with the mouse or Wacon tablet. Photoshop skills are a plus but not a requirement for this course.
