Teaching

Motion Graphics: Theory and Design

Intended to develop creativity and a personal style, as well as hone professional and artistic skills, this course will focus on an innovative approach to producing motion graphics projects, including crossover (designers as artists, artists as designers), inspiration, osmosis and looking beyond the screen to the world around us. The art of title design for opening sequences will also be addressed. Self-directed short- and long- term projects within an artistic design framework will be supported, and group critiques will help to develop communication and visual analytic skills. Reel building will be examined to further professional development. This course is for flexible, open-minded thinkers who want to explore their creative vision and learn the art of communication through moving imagery. Prerequisites: Motion Graphics I, or equivalent, and a working knowledge of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
