In this intense, 3-week course, you will be practicing your ability to animate characters in 2d walking and dancing, implementing the principles of acting and physicality. Moreover, rhythm, sound and music will be addressed in regards to how it relates and influences an animated scene. Students will gain insight into how to develop believable and consistent characters through 2d animated performance.


Throughout the course, you will be animating in Toon Boom Harmony, which will be introduced at the beginning of the course. Since the software is industry standard for animated TV-series, the course will provide relevant practice for you who are interested in entering that work field.


In general, the course is very practical and hands-on. The teaching will be a combination of lectures, assignments and feedback - individually and in groups, aimed at pushing each student to reach as high a skill level in 2d animation as possible.


The course finishes with a graded exam based on the topic of the course. This is a portfolio exam for which the student collects his/her 3 best exercises done during the course.
