Course outline

Anyone who has engaged in persuasive communication knows that storytelling is a great way to reach people - and animation is a great way to tell a story. A qualification in 2D animation allows you to create better advertising, better user interfaces, and stronger information design. People with traditional industry training need to enhance their skills to enter an expanding set of opportunities in the digital design industry.

Module 1: Motion Fundamentals

An introduction to the online learning platform (Moodle) will be followed by an introduction to motion as well as the design conventions associated with animation. By the end of the module, learners will be able to create visual elements for 2D animation for a variety of purposes.

Module 2: Develop Visuals

In Module 2, learners will build on the fundamentals from the previous module and build up to being able to develop characters for animation. They will learn to use relevant software so that they can create convincing and accurate figures in a variety of motion-specific posts.

In this module, we will look at the processes to follow to create and composite layers that interact with each other through movement. Learners will gain the necessary tools and knowledge to breakdown the animation into workable segments on the timeline. By the end of this module, you will be able to present the visual and timing structure for animation as well as animate the elements compiled with the principles of animation.

Module 4: Animation Application
