COURSE DESCRIPTION: Advanced studio course using a variety of software in the production of motion graphics and videos. Topics introduced include interactivity, digital animation, audio track (voice over, music, etc.) editing, and text animation (titles, scrolling credits, etc.).
OBJECTIVES: Please know that the class is partly software oriented, and that you are fully responsible for teaching yourselves. Students will carry out these objectives through learning exercises, assignments, instructor guidance, and discussions – they will be able to:

1) Maintain a sketchbook/journal to develop a working process that will lead to a body of visual work, as well as vocabulary for critically engaging that work, laying a solid foundation for further study.
2) Gain a working knowledge and understanding of using Adobe After Effects and its components.
3) Develop both analytical and communication skills that can be applied to storytelling using typography, motion graphics, and animation.
4) Conceptualize original ideas through storyboarding and identify methods/processes.
5) Organize information to make compelling and experimental visual expression for presentation.
6) Demonstrate their competence by developing motion graphics and special effects, multi-layered/composite movies from many raster & vector images, typography, line art, photos, & video.
7) Integrate feedback through critiques and carry projects through the production process.
8) Develop a portfolio to enter the working force.
