Animation and Animation Production
In today's era of new media and entertainment, digital technology influences everything from short-form animations to feature-length films.
An extraordinary animator is one who can successfully integrate content and technique, distinguishing quality animation from a technical exercise. At Webster University, undergraduate students have the option to major in Animation or minor in Animation Production. Students pursuing an Animation degree learn core principles and techniques, storytelling skills for short and long-form animations and the expression of those stories using current digital animation tools.
Graduates from the School of Communications have gone on to help animate portions of "King Kong," "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow," and all three installments of "The Lord of the Rings."
