Welcome to Intro./Advanced Computer Modeling & Animation
and Game Art & Design.
You will need the following for these classes:
A USB drive (4 gigs or more)
A 3-ring binder or notebook with pockets and paper, pens, and pencils.
Modeling and Animation introduces students to techniques used in computer generated effects, animated film and video games. We will focus on learning the techniques, tools, and workflow used by professionals in the field. Students will learn in-depth techniques in Autodesk 3ds Max with some targeted work in Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, and Premiere Pro.
Game Art and Design provides an overview of the history of games and cards, electronic games, and preparing a Game Design Document. Students will create original card and board games, and will use Game Maker to create and code original electronic games.
Work in these classes is project-based and self-directed. Students are required to develop long-term time management skills and self-discipline.
