Film2Future 2017: ANIMATION

Film2Future’s second year program focuses on animation with over 80 industry professionals working with our students. During the first week, F2F will guide students’ exploration of animation with historical background, storytelling mechanics, pitching how-to’s, exposure to design elements, and an introduction to animation technology. At the end of this week, we will divide our 25 students into five teams. Each team will collaborate to write and storyboard a short animatic. For the second week, with the guidance of industry mentors, students will learn and implement animation production fundamentals: character design panels, layout boards, staging of elements, boarding sequences, spotting sessions, and editing techniques.

After our two-week intensive program concludes, our student teams will collaborate with industry professionals to edit and finalize their animatic in preparation for a fall screening.
