DES 3840 - Motion Design

Credits: 4

In this intermediate, project-based course students learn the process of creating and understanding motion-based and animated sequences. Motion design is the purposeful use of moving images, content, and sound to convey or express messages. Students explore the fundamental principles of motion in both theory and practice. Projects and assignments can be weekly or they can be multi-week. Contemporary motion design software is combined with traditional animation techniques. Topics in this course can include animated cycles, kinetic typography, sequential structures, kinetic states, sketching and ideation, storyboarding, editing and audio integration. Classes include lectures, critique, discussion, reading and writing assignments, software demonstrations, and in-class studio work. Students are expected to work outside of class to finish projects and assignments.
