This course is designed for students who seek an understanding of Maya character animation. Beginning with story development and character design, students will learn character modeling, shading, rigging, and animation by using the 3D animation software Maya. Focusing on students' individual projects, this course includes lectures about fundamental concepts of character animation, hands-on lab demonstrations, course discussions about animation theory, and studio critiques. All students are expected to create an animation short independently at the end of the semester.
