Course Title
Sound Design for Animation

Description of Course:

The goals and differentiation of this sound design course from other sound design undergraduate courses are clear. Unique design considerations associated with animation are very different than other forms of sound design production. An animation soundtrack is not tied to recording made during a live taping or filming, but rather generated from scratch from the collaboration with the animator, the director and the shared resource of the storyboard. As a collaborative the sound designer must understand the aesthetics, tools and workflow associated with a given project. The course is designed around the idea of offering a path to understanding the overall workflow techniques for the sound designer but also this unique relationship of sound to the design of the animatics and other aspects of the storyboarding process that drive the timeline in the development of an professional animation
