VSCT 226 - Motion Graphics I

This course will introduce the student to the principles and practice of animated motion graphics. It will provide a thorough foundation in time-based graphic design, which underlines the new and expanding realm of digital motion graphics. Students will develop their skills in time-based narrative strategies that will include graphics, text and live action components. Soundtrack design along with basic video and audio editing will also be covered. Being fully immersed in digital moving image production, the student will draw upon his/her existing knowledge of graphic design and illustration to adapt their ideas and graphics to motion in order to create exciting, imaginative, and compelling short time based narratives. Students will have the option of images being created inside or outside the digital realm with all project post-production taking place using digital software.
