WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

This course is suitable for students that have already solid skills in drawing and painting and want to experience the thrills of an animated project.

ABOUT THE COURSE

The “Short film creation” course is an interesting creative project in which practicing and beginning 2D animators, artists, and composers unite into teams and work on a common project using a pipeline. Each course enrollment is work on a new project, which is created from scratch from idea to final form and is accompanied by stages in which one team completes its part of the work and transfers it to another.

The created projects participate in international competitions and festivals and serve as decorations for all participants and the walls of our school.
Participation in such a project is a useful experience in itself, but, in addition to this, there is always the possibility of a school short film winning a competition or festival in which the stream team participates and its winning participants are awarded (according to the conditions).

You will develop the visual effects of the film: Character Design, Prop Design, Background Design, Still frames. Together with other project teams, you will exchange ideas throughout the course, work on creating color scripts, background layouts, character layouts, painting characters and backgrounds, etc.

You will do rough and finish animation for a future project. Together with other project teams, you will exchange ideas throughout the course, work on creating a storyboard, layout, color script, environment design, etc.

Participation in the project will give you knowledge in the following areas:
Visual development
Animation,
2D effects,
Compositing.

You will learn to work in a team and bring a project to completion in a studio environment.
