Animation 3

arrow down

In Animation 3 you get the chance to prove yourself as an actor or for example to impersonate the drama queen you always wanted to be!

  • We explore the mysterious world of emotions and how to reproduce them on an animated character in order to make your audience weep, scream or laugh.
  • We learn how to analyse sound.
  • Make your puppet babble his life away with convincing lipsynch.
  • We enter an animation contest so you get some fresh feedback. This is a good way to compare your qualities to other animators and to exchange your experiences.

And finally… carte blanche: do what you are best at. Make the animationclip you WANT to make (within the time boundaries of the semester of course.


All this should provide you with a solid base to become a real animator and to explore this fantastic universe to infinity and beyond.
