About This Course
Some of the greatest stories ever told were the cartoons and animations that have stood the test of time. 2D story telling is loved the world over, for its simplicity, depth of character and creative possibilities. These days, 2D animation extends beyond the staples of Disney and childhood heroes. Japanese anime and manga are global phenomenons and 2D content is used in many avenues, including advertising, video games, web promotion and brand creation.
2D animation is for those who want to learn animation using traditional 2D techniques (but with modern tools). Students who take this path will have interests in things like drawing, character development, character animation, story and directing. Students will end up with a strong base of fundamental animating, and storytelling principles.
