GRPH 391

Digital Animation & Storytelling

Your one stop shop for UNL design students that are currently enrolled or considering enrolling in Special Topics: GRPH391.

Course Description

Summed up in one sentence: This class is a happy collision of Illustration, Story Telling, Character Design, Animation, and Web Design.

Students will take the formal elements of design that they already know and apply them to the production of visual storytelling media that emotionally moves and installs empathy in their audiences. This will be done by developing highly immersive and cohesive ecosystems which connect characters, environments, motion, and storytelling with a digital delivery.

Students will be guided through the process of bringing their storyboard ideas to life by manipulating space, time, and sound. It is recommended that students will have rudimentary After Effects, Illustrator, and Web Design knowledge.


Weekly Assignments

These are on-going assignments that are due at the start of each week. We'll meet as a group and discuss before we plan our weekly agenda.
