WFTV 260 Worldbuilding for Film, Games, and Animation

3 credits 45.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

Designed for game artists, animators, filmmakers, and writers of all mediums, this course begins and supports the vast and elaborate process of speculative world-building. Students will form a fictional world that comments on a specific aspect of our existing world, and then expand that idea into a setting for a story. As they fill in the basic rules and everyday details of this fictional world, they will practice using characters to demonstrate the world’s parameters, which, by the end of the course, will lead to the logical seed of a plot.

Prerequisites WFTV*133
