MAAN 211 - Character Design

3 credits
Designing characters, backgrounds, pans, and creative camera moves for the animated scene. Design styles and techniques are explored for their potential to develop a wide range of character types, traits, moods, personalities, and attitudes. Students learn to integrate space and characters action, work with camera fields, deal with composition and perspective, and create moods through layout. A final project requires development of an animator’s bible, a production workbook for the student’s personal film portfolio.

Prerequisites MAAN*201 or MAAN*202
