Animation Minor

PRINCIPLES OF ANIMATION

LCAD’s Animation Minor offers you an opportunity to broaden your career options by learning the principles of animation in both traditional (hand-drawn) and cg (computer generated) mediums.

 

LCAD’s Animation Minor emphasizes full animation with acting choices and expressions dictated by personality. You may choose to apply the skills you learn to feature films, games, television, and Internet animation. As an Animation minor at LCAD, you will study character design and storyboarding and will have an opportunity to create a short personal film.

 

Whatever your ultimate goals, as an Animation minor, you will build speed and confidence in your draftsmanship and will gain the ability to stylize and dynamically pose dimensional characters.
