You'll evaluate excellent cutout scenes with the help of your mentor and apply what you've learned to your own work.

You will have a good grasp of advanced cutout style animation methods, as well as confidence in rigging and animating figures and animals, at the conclusion of this semester.

In term 2, push yourself to go beyond what you believed was achievable with your talents. Using the cutout animation approach, you'll dive into a range of projects, including single and two-character conversation-acting situations. You'll learn how to utilize Harmony's FX and compositing tools to add effects and compositing to your conversation sequences.

You will have a greater grasp of how, when, and why you should use FX in your animations by the conclusion of this term, as well as hands-on experience with Harmony's compositing and FX tools.
