Test your skills and challenge your brain with AWN's Animation Trivia Quiz. Check out the latest installment from quizmaster Karl Staven, an accomplished independent animator and head of the Animation Department at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Freshmen at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia generally take a year of foundation courses (drawing, 2D design, 3D work) before plunging into their major. Future animation majors can, and often do, take a short course called "Freshman Animation" their first year. They learn some about the medium and its history, and create some short animations. The following questions are all taken from Lowell Boston's "Freshman Animation" test (Lowell has taught at UArts for many years and is a pretty good fencer to boot). See how you do on this college freshman exam.
