The Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) and the Animation Research Labs (ARL) invite you to an online Information Session that will cover the Animation Production course sequence at University of Washington Seattle. This sequence runs from Summer 2020 (A term) through Spring 2021. All summer courses are highly recommended but optional. Summer courses offered include: Facial Expressions for Animated Characters (2020 A Term), Character Design and World Building for Real-Time Cinematics (2020 both A and B Term) and Story Design for Computer Animation (2020 B Term).

The Animation Capstone series of courses culminates in a very professional and exciting collaboratively produced digital short film, similar in process to Disney/Pixar and DreamWorks productions. Examples of award-winning films that were produced in this program will be shown at the session. We will answer questions regarding applications and admissions. We all look forward to seeing you there.
