*This course is completely in English*
How do you create “life” from a series of static images? How does animation really work?
The course
You start with watching other animations and discussing how they were made. You can suggest or bring animations that you would like to know more about. Then you will learn some basic 2D animation techniques (pen-and-paper = animation) and apply them in a digital work environment. 
During the week, you will work both digital and non-digital. In the first case, you start with short and simple assignments that consist of only a few images (frames) up until a few seconds. Then you will focus more on using the techniques you have obtained to bring human figures to life.
You also explore the non-digital 3D techniques, like stop-motion and pixilation, and some 2D-techniques like paper cut-out and rotoscoping. 
At the end of the course, as a group you will make an “animation jam”: a collaborative animation. During the course you will learn the terminology of the medium. 
Entry level
You will need some basic drawing skills. Experience in using Adobe Animate or similar software is useful, but not essential. Basic knowledge of how to use a Mac is required. 
During the course, we will use the iMacs and digital tablets at CREA. Make sure to bring something to store your work, like a USB or external drive, compatible with an iMac. You are allowed to use your own laptop, but you will be responsible for acquiring the software.
Every week ends with presentations on Friday evening at 7 pm, where each course will show what they worked on that week. On Monday evening and Wednesday afternoon there will be a side programme.
