  • Structure and content

    This course is an introduction to animation production and is for anyone who wants to try their hands at animating. While doing exercises and small movie productions you will work through the entire process of making an animation film. We will go through everything from idea to the finished product and at the same time teach you the basic principles of animation. You will mostly be working with the software TV-Paint. While attending the course, you will be able to work on a computer in the school which has the software and a drawing tablet. Other necessary drawing materials will also be provided.
