    Will Weston Composition for Animation and Film Late Fall 2020

    Working from an instructor-provided story prompt, students spend 6 weeks learning to execute all stages of a composition's development, from initial storyboards and prop design through rough sketches and on to final the composition (layout). This is important because, professionally, every developmental stage is used in review processes that determine the future direction of a project. Everything, thumbnails to the final layout, must be clear and provide visual information needed for creative decision making.

    There are no requirements for this class, however, it assumes students enter with reasonable drawing skills. If in doubt, consider taking Drawing for Composition, or MAD SCIENCE (recommended in this order) first. Those courses prepare students for this one.

    Live Class Schedule (via Zoom) Nov. 8, 15, 22, 29, Dec 6, 13. All classes meet from 12:00 - 1:30 EST.
