The B.A. in Animation emphasizes solid traditional animation and storytelling skills, while encouraging experimentation in form, content and medium. Students are free to work in hand-drawn, stop-motion, cut-out and 3D computer animation. They may produce hybrid forms fully integrated with live action video, draw web-based shorts inspired by Hollywood or anime, or design motion graphics for film titles and commercials.
Students will gain a broad foundation in the rich history of the art form, drawing and design skills, and prepare for the future under the guidance of faculty with professional experience in television, film, art and interactive media. Students will have access to the latest in animation technology, computing systems, and software. Students will gain valuable production experience both in class and through internships, and benefit from CDM's relationship with Chicago's many animation and production studios.
