Video & Animation

Students of Video & Animation (Time-Based Media) at Western Oregon University:

Students in upper level Video & Animation courses create projects using a variety of technologies, with emphasis on composition, timing, conceptual development, design process, and experimentation. In addition to gaining experience with cameras and software, students thoughtfully engage key issues of storytelling, appropriation, and prevailing cultural mythologies. Topics include camera technique, storyboarding, scripting, editing, 2D character animation, sound, visual effects, animated typography, digital 3D modeling, experimental film, and more.

VCD majors and minors can enroll in Video & Animation courses without having taken the Graphic Design series. Art majors or minors may choose Video & Animation as a concentration area. Course numbers: A326, A327, A328.
