3D animation is an exciting and fast growing industry used in most video games and animated movies- think Mario Kart 8, Madden NFL, Frozen, and How to Train Your Dragon. Students in this course learn the basics of 3D animation by creating their own worlds with life forms, digital objects from the Internet, and sound using Maya software. The course begins with introductory exercises to explore the possibilities in 3D animation and ends with students creating their own final projects based on their interests. Visits to the Art Institute of Chicago, artist presentations, and short animated video viewings supplement the studio experience. **Note: Previous experience with computers and animation is recommended.
