We have a summer in Storrs for you!
UConn's Pre-College Summer Digital Animation & Motion Graphics course provides high school students the opportunity to dive into the complex world behind multimedia productions at a nationally ranked public university campus.
Your future starts now.
Offered during Session 3, our Digital Animation & Motion Graphics course aims to provide students with the conceptual and practical tools for understanding and creating the diverse range of time-based media that have come to be known as motion graphics and digital animation. Throughout the course, students will create visual effects and animated graphics for television, film, web, and other types of multimedia productions using Cinema 4D, and Adobe After Effects in conjunction with Illustrator, Photoshop, and Premiere Pro.
Come work with Assistant Professor of Digital Media and Design, Heejoo Gwen Kim. Kim works as an experimental/documentary animated filmmaker and new media artist, currently creating projects focusing on social issues, such as microaggressions, feminism, elder abuse, and psychology in experimental narrative film structures.
Her films and installations have been internationally presented at festivals, conferences, and galleries in Germany, UK, Lebanon, Mexico, Bulgaria, Turkey, France, Philippine, India, Latvia, Canada, Korea, Italy, Ecuador, Australia, Romania, etc. and throughout the United States. Her films have received awards including Best Animation, Best Experimental Film, and Best of Show at several international film festivals and conferences. She had been a director, a curator, a coordinator, an adjudicator for International Animation + New Media Art festivals, conferences, and shows.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: After careful consideration and comprehensive discussions with many who are deeply invested in the health and education of our students, we have decided that the most responsible course of action is to cancel all Pre-College Summer 2020 sessions. Unfortunately, the Program's focus on providing a residential experience with hands-on courses does not make online learning a realistic or feasible option.
