This course focuses on the layout process in animation production which is the creation of the monochromatic drawings which are later rendered as backgrounds for each shot. Students will strengthen their drawing skills by learning how to draw in proper perspective, understand lighting and shading principles. The layout process also teaches students how to block character animation within each shot and also understand how the camera functions within the action of each shot.
