    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    With a professor who is experienced both in teaching and in the field of study, any and all students reap the rewards. An educator is at their best when they have both years of experience under their belt, and an invaluable perspective because they are still actively working in the field and are in touch with the world the students are preparing for. The course is relevant and crucial to a career in Animation in our world today, and covers all the bases in an array of commonly used and extremely beneficial programs to help students develop a proficiency in their craft when they enter the working world.

    Course highlights:

    This course covers essential skills and knowledge in a very hands-on approach, utilizing some of the most relevant programs in animation today, including Photoshop, After Effects, and Flash. From the basics to the more advanced techniques, we were taught vital skills and strategies to shape us all into fine animators and prepare us for the requirements and expectations of the career path we sought to work in. When signing up for this class, prepare for a course that challenges you and requires you to retain skills you will continue to need and use well into adulthood; don't feel overwhelmed, time management and hard work are key factors to shine in this course. When you work hard and put your heart into your projects it will show, especially in the eyes of your professor.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Effort. How much or how little work you put into your projects will show, and your professor will always be wary of it. This class will favor the students with a solid work ethic, even if their drawing skills aren't the best far above those who have excellent drawing skills, but have the habit of procrastinating and putting little time into their animations. Animation is akin to every other field of art, and many other fields in life itself: raw talent alone cannot overcome effort and determination. Keep this in mind if you take this course to spend a fair amount of time and a decent pace working on your project to avoid rushing and potentially lowering the quality to meet the deadline, it will make all the difference.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Create a work schedule and stick to it! Dedicate yourselves and put your ALL into this course. Learn what you can handle and how to handle it. Deadlines are VERY IMPORTANT. This man teaches you about the real world for animators and sticking to deadlines while displaying great work is the key to success. All nighters will be your best friend if your procrastinate (which I DON'T recommend doing). Pull all-nighters when necessary. Don't do anything last minute. Any mistakes he'll spot them out. He will be brutally honest and fair, so don't take things to heart. Just work hard and show what you can do!

    Course highlights:

    Seeing my classmates work on the day of presentation would always be awesome. It's inspiring and a bit competitive if you think about it.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    DO NOT PROCRASTINATE. AND DO NOT KEEP THINGS SIMPLE.
