COMM-455 Motion Graphics and Effects II (3)

Through the discussion of theory, concepts, techniques, protocols, and hands-on projects, students improve their design, compositing, and animation craft. Hands-on work enables students to become proficient in intermediate compositing and animating skills and in current software and concepts used for cutting-edge motion graphics and compositing in motion pictures, television, commercials, and music video. Examples of outside work are presented and analyzed in class. Additionally, students rely on the individual and collective imagination and creativity of the class to complete their work.
