ANI 601: MFA Thesis Project I

This course is part of a year-long three course sequence, and is continued in ANI 602 and 603. This series of courses will concentrate on facilitating the Animation MFA students' production of their MFA thesis project. In addition to animated films, students are also encouraged to explore alternative animation solutions, including TV shows, installations, interactive/game projects, augmented/virtual reality, performance, and others. At the beginning of the quarter students will develop a thesis proposal, which must be approved by their MFA thesis committee and the course instructor before proceeding with production. Much of this course will consist of self-directed research and production by the student, supplemented by mentoring by the instructor and critique with the entire class. Students will also meet regularly with the members of their MFA thesis committee, who will provide individual feedback and technical advice. This course must be taken consecutively with ANI 602 MFA Thesis Project II and ANI 603 MFA Thesis Project III. PREREQUISITE(S): ANI 503; Open to Animation MFA students only
