  • Kathryn Andrews gets some of her best ideas driving around Los Angeles, where the visual contradictions she sees every day find their way into her art. Andrews, who is originally from Mobile, Alabama, is known for the commonplace objects she fabricates from highly polished and painted metal, into which she incorporates inexpensive or borrowed finds, including rented Hollywood props.

Continuing Education Course

SEM: 40


Stop-Motion Animation


This hands-on course provides a strong foundation in stop-motion animation using nonlinear video editing skills and techniques. Editing software including Final Cut Pro and Photoshop is used to create projects that focus on continuity, screen direction, and narrative clarity. Course covers:Building a model/character/subject, shooting a scene, capturing, organizing workflow, building rough cuts by working with timelines and clips, refining rough cuts through the use of trimming, refining timing, and applying transitions. Working in small teams, the class’s primary project is a short narrative video, which is then used as the basis to explore animation/editing approaches and techniques. Using the same footage, each student creates their own edit of the narrative, refining and focusing it over the course of the term. Hands-on tutorials reinforce technique and concepts introduced in lecture and demonstrations. Films and videos that demonstrate key concepts from lecture material are screened and discussed. Students also learn basic terminology and receive an overview of career options in the editing and animation field.

Prerequisite: Storyboarding, Digital Story Telling, Production - FCP, Photoshop a plus.
