Ongoing assignments include reading, discussion, animation exercises, presentations, and other class work as appropriate. Students are expected to spend 8 to 10 hours a week outside the class working on their assignments and reading the material.
Materials That You Will Need
For the flipbook exercise:
For ongoing exercises: (Most of these materials can be found on line at http://cartooncolour.com/
- One or two packages of white unlined index cards (5x8)
- A good drawing pencil: Ebony pencils are soft and give a black line. You will need to sharpen the point quite often, so you may need to invest in a sharpener (either an electric sharpener or a little metal sharpener).
- One eraser: It should work for your pencil.
- Some drawing materials: water-soluble markers, colored pencils, pastels, etc. This is up to you and will depend on what materials you want to use for the flipbook. Some people may find that working with a black pencil is all that they need. Wait until we begin the flipbook project to purchase these materials because then you will have a better idea about what you will want.
- Some tape: to mark / register your cards
- Paper: 12 Field Size, 500 Sheets (1 ream) 10-1/2” x 12-1/2” PUNCHED
- Animation peg bars
- A field
- Black pencils
- Blue pencils
- VHS videotapes, ZIP disks, and CD ROMS to record and show your work.
Students will be evaluated on the following criteria:
- Quality of work and understanding of the problematic of the exercise
- In-class participation
