Final Project

For the rest of the semester, you will be creating a unique and mature piece of work in class.  
The piece must include:

1. A work that has a theme or a story that is thought provoking or emotionally moving (funny, sad, etc.)
2. A work that has good form (good ending, climax, conflict, resolution, character arc, etc.)
3. Animation that is timed well (ease in and out, appropriate speed, not choppy)
4. Good use of art and design: nicely drawn backgrounds, characters, props; good use of color and composition
I would like you to work up a little "pitch" for your final animation project idea, 
and pitch it to me and the rest of the class on Tuesday (3/26)

come up with a schedule of completion by thursday

character design
film footage

Here some further details on the final project.

The course culminates in the development of your own animation piece.

This can be done individually or in groups of two or three students.

In the case of a group project, the duration of the piece should be at least on minute.

Other than that, remember to keep it as simple and short as possible.
