    The 2D + Experimental Animation Major embraces diverse animation media and crafting practices. Students develop as creative animation designers and critical thinkers. Forms of narrative storytelling are explored through the art of classical animation, using both traditional and digital drawing methods. Experimental animation includes media such as stop-motion puppets, cut-outs, paint-on-glass and motion graphics. Critical analysis and comprehension of animation arts involves writing, history, and media studies.

    Animation students engage with an in-depth study of animation principles, design, character development, story and production techniques that expose them to every aspect of animation production. Students create two major film projects in both 3rd and 4th years, both of which come from their own directorial vision and efforts. These rigorous projects reflect an animator and artist that is developing robust comprehension and flexible skill sets for the complete animation production process. This model of education experience is unique in Canada, and prepares individuals for employment in various animation, visual effects, and cultural industries.
