In the 18 years I've been a professor I've met some outstanding students, eager to learn about becoming an interactive communicator in the modern era.
I've taught front- and back-end coding and tech; graphic design & typography; audio and video pre- and post-production; frame-by-frame animation; history of digital media culture; project management; digital portfolio layout; book design, and much more.
I use cutting-edge code and tools to show students how to create elegant, flexible designs using the latest and greatest industry-standard tools.
Using “frame” as a metaphor for the relationship between sequence and simultaneity, Frame-By-Frame Animation delivers insight into the ongoing evolution of animated content as well as hands-on experience exploring time-based projects based on physical, digital & web media.
“Focusing on the animation, stop-motion and time-lapse work of Segundo de Chomón, Georges Méliès, Walt Disney, Ray Harryhausen, Jan Švankmajer, Terry Gilliam, James Cameron and PES, among others, I utilize still photos, text, clay, found objects, cut-out drawings and paint to introduce students to the principles and workflows for physical and digital frame-by-frame animation, including detailed storyboarding; audio editing and synchronization; lighting and much more.
The course assumes no prior animation, software, video, audio, lighting or photography experience.”
