    Students will learn the basics of animation. Over the course of 5 weeks they will go from having no former knowledge to having a grasp over the major concepts of the art form and knowing how to create their very own short animated films. This class gives students the skills to turn whatever fantastical things they can imagine into reality.

    Live classes will be held once per week, for an hour per session, for five weeks. During this time students will be taught the basics of animation, including the 12 Principles, lip syncing, layers and parallax, how to use all of the necessary hardware and software for animated filmmaking, and how to put it all together to make their very own films.
    Week 1: Intro to Pencil2D, Animation Basics
    Week 2: Keyframes, Animation Physics
    Week 3: Layers and Parallax
    Week 4: Lip Syncing
    Week 5: 12 Principles of Animation

    Each week, we'll learn some new concepts, and then spend the majority of class time creating an animation together that puts those concepts into practice. The homework each week will be to finish what we started in class, and if students follow along and complete the homework, they will end each week with a new short animation that shows off their new skills and their imagination. At the end of the class, the final assignment will be to put it all together into a final project where the students can create a longer animation about whatever they want and then share it with the class.

    Students are guaranteed individual instruction and attention during each session to ensure that their learning is tailored toward exactly what they want out of animated filmmaking.

    REQUIREMENTS: You must have downloaded and installed Pencil2D before the first day of class. Unfortunately, it's not available for tablets, phones, or Chromebooks, and so those won't be adequate for the class.

    GUARANTEE: I work tirelessly to make sure my classes are the best on the internet, bar none. Each and every student will get as much one-on-one attention as they need to make sure they learn everything they want to and get the absolute best experience out of the class possible. If your student needs any extra attention, has any questions about anything, or has any special needs, please let me know so that I can help!
