Full Course Description:

Motion Graphics is the use of animation of visual elements to contribute to story telling in film, video and interactive media. This project based course will introduce some of the fundamental uses for motion graphics such as the creation of compelling animated title sequences, the development and integration of visual effects/special effects, compositing and color correction. Students will also focus on how motion graphics contribute or reflect story themes to advance greater narrative and conceptual goals. While the main tool for this class is Adobe After Effects the general concepts that will be covered are applicable to a range of other animation tools.
