Course Description:

Toon Boom Animation is a software program that allows students to draw, animate or add special effects to create content of their choice. In this course students will explore storyboarding, scripting, camera controls, animatic creation capabilities and sound. Does the student like the idea of creating animated stories but insecure about their drawing skills? No problem! The Toon Boom program has hundreds of characters, images and backgrounds to select from and use while learning the same animation techniques as their peers. By the end of this course students will have been guided through the core concepts of animating in Storyboard Pro. They will also have a short project they created to show for it!


Students will learn core storyboarding concepts in Storyboard Pro from basic panel sketching and caption management to animatic creation. Each day’s newly acquired skills will be used to add to their individual projects, and the culminating goal of the 5-day course will be creating a short 30-45sec animation.
