Physics of Animation course (Fall 2009)



"Physics of Animation" is an upper-division General Education course on the principles and concepts of physics relevant to animation and special effects. It will be offered for the first time this coming Fall semester at San Jose State University.

Upcoming Master Classes (Summer 2009)



Physics of Character Animation This class will cover advanced mechanics and bio-mechanics as it applies to character animation. No previous physics experience is required; some animation experience is expected.

Saturday, June 20th, 3:30pm - 5:00pm, De Anza College, Learning Center West, Room 26

There is no charge for attending this Master Class.


Previous Master Classes (Summer 2008)



Advanced Animation Physics This class will cover advanced mechanics (energy, momentum, rotation) as it applies to character animation. No previous physics experience is required; some animation experience is expected.

Wednesday, July 23rd, 9:30am - 11:30am, De Anza College, Learning Center West, Room 26

There is no charge for attending this Master Class but it is limited to De Anza students.


Intermediate Animation Physics This class will cover basic statics and dynamics (Newton's laws of motion, Inertia, etc.) and describe how they apply to the Principles of Animation, such as Squash and Stretch, Timing, Drag, Follow-through, etc.. No previous physics experience is required; some animation experience is expected.

Tuesday, July 22nd, 9:30am - 11:30pm, De Anza College, Learning Center West, Room 26

There is no charge for attending this Master Class but it is limited to De Anza students.


Introductory Animation Physics This class will cover basic kinematics as it applies to animation. Topics discussed include many of the Principles of Animation, such as, Timing, Path of Action, Slowing In/Out, Anticipation, etc. No previous physics experience is required; some animation experience is helpful.
