    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Marty is extremely passionate about teaching and his students! He makes anyone feel welcome in his classes, and while he emphasizes knowing the basics, he leaves a lot of room for experimentation and personal style which is great. Regardless of your artistic ability or style, Marty will treat you equally with every other student and appreciate the work that you do. There are other teachers for the freshman animation class, but if you want a teacher that is respectful as well as open to your style, but still pushes you and teaches the animation basics, Marty is a good teacher!

    Course highlights:

    The class for one is five hours! It might sound a little demanding, but it is amazing because it really allows the students to dig deep and immerse themselves in their animations. Also, everything is done traditionally in class with stacks of paper and light boxes. For me, I learned the basics to animation, timing, physics, squash/stretch etc, but also how to apply the regimented basics to my own style.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You will get assignments each week, and work on them a little each day for a couple of hours because it pays off to have a finished animation when Marty and the class watch all the homework at the end of class. Also, don't be afraid to talk and ask questions!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course itself is a challenge of the mind. You have so many options to show what you can do, all you need to do is work towards the deadline. Marty (Martin) is a little lenient sometimes if he knows your work ethic, but he makes sure that you know what you're doing and that you'll finish your assignment. Overall just be yourself and let your art do the work for you and you basically have an A.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class was definitely when Marty shows everyone's assignment on the big screen and we all get to critique and help each other build on our animations. It brings us closer as a class and it shows the true collaborative aspect of being an animator.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Continue to be inspired and do your best!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it for those who aspire to be a Visual Artist seeking a degree in Animation.

    Course highlights:

    I got to work with the equipment that I've always dreamed of having and learned some great tips into the history of animation.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to have an interest in the Visual Arts and have the drawing and problem solving skills in order to excel. You also need to understand basic anatomy and body movement to help animate.
