Animation & Visual FX (Ages 16+)

Train to become a well-rounded animator and visual FX artist with our Animation & Visual FX Track. 

Amp up your video productions with stop-motion and computer generated imagery, all the while exploring the world of 2D and 3D animation by creating backgrounds, characters, landscapes and animating text.

This track is not just for animators; adding animated or moving elements can help create a personalized look to your films. Our Photoshop classes will also give you fundamental skills that can be utilized in several creative software.

Experimental Media (Ages 16+)

Expand and enhance your approach to filmmaking with our Experimental Media track, designed for both introductory and advanced creatives to use new and experimental methods of media creation.

Manipulate video with an analog processor, create your own signal with a video synthesizer and learn how to use video projectors to create exciting art installations. We also have workshops that teach you how to add interactive elements to your media using creative coding techniques.

Whether you’re a filmmaker, musician, animator, visual or performance artist, this track will help you integrate experimental methods of media creation into your practice.
