Ontario, Canadas Sheridan College is now offering Writing for Animation through the Program for Continuing Education. The object of this course is to teach the principles of animation writing for short films (both commercial and personal), television series and feature films. Through lectures and guest speakers, group discussions and one-on-one critiques, students will explore such principles as writing for movement, creating believable animated characters -- human, animal and object -- and building a consistent world. This knowledge will be applied toward the creation of a script/storyboard for a short animated film from concept to a finished production-ready piece. This class is also available as a distance learning course. The 14-week course begins January 22, 2002 and runs until the end of April 2002.
