2D Animation

Animation is an exciting art form which provides a fun, creative outlet and also has great career prospects.

Filmbites’ 2D course may especially appeal to students with drawing skills however it is not essential.

The only prerequisite is a desire to bring a story to life.

Students learn to use OpenToonz, a free software used by famed animation studio Studio Ghibli (Ponyo, My Neighbour Totoro)

BEGINNER: Learn the interface and navigation of OpenToonz to create short sequences, building skills in character, background and audio to eventually produce their own their own short animation in Term 4 production term.

ADVANCED: Simulating an animation studio environment, students will work individually to contribute to the production of a single animated project.
