CRN: 3630

This course introduces the concepts of motion design, the combination of the languages of film and graphic design. Students develop an understanding of motion literacy, kinetic images and type, as well as the pictorial and sequential aspects of composition and choreography. The principles of motion design are presented in the context of examples and weekly assignments to challenge students artistically. The course discusses conceptualization and processes utilized by motion designers working in both the fine art and professional realms. Students use Adobe After Effects to learn the basic techniques of key framing, compositing, and manipulating visual elements, and, for their final project, each design and produce their own short animation.

Prerequisite: Media Practices: Design (NMDS 5426) or instructor permission. Media Studies courses are open to all graduate students. Undergraduate Juniors and Seniors with permission from the instructor and BA/MA Media studies students should email mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu for access.
