Animation 30L

Course Description

Animation 30L is a personalized course that builds on the skills learned in Animation 20L. Students will develop their own short animated film and work through the real world filmmaking process from pitching their initial idea to fully producing a short animated scene. Resources are personalized to the student’s skill level and project. Resources will include short courses developed in partnership with Vancouver Animation School (VANAS).

Students will be working on an independent project for the entire term so they will need to have excellent time management and independent learning skills.

Students will create an online portfolio which will include artifacts created throughout the course. Not only does this portfolio allow an animator to showcase their work, it will be a valuable asset when applying to post-secondary institutions and when job seeking in this field
