MFA Short Film III
This course is part of a year-long project, and is a continuation of ANI 501 and 502. This series of courses will concentrate on facilitating the Animation MFA students' production of a short, independently animated project. The short film project serves as a preparation for the students' MFA thesis project in year two. The topics of idea generation, experimentation, problem solving, planning and time management, and the process of critical analysis will be applied to the student's work, with the choice of animation technique, content and form left to the individual. Special attention will be devoted to discovering and developing each student's personal voice. Technical demonstrations will be presented on an as-needed basis, depending on the nature of the students' projects. In addition to the course instructor, students will be assigned two faculty mentors who will also provide individual feedback and technical advice. This course must be taken consecutively with ANI 501 MFA Short Film I and ANI 502 MFA Short Film II. Open to Animation MFA students only
ANI 502 is a prerequisite for this class.
