Abstract

This capstone project was focused on obtaining a basic understanding of both the technical and creative processes involved in creating a computer animation. The process of obtaining this understanding involved practice in creating small sample still images, animations, stories, and storyboards in order to learn the basics of the chosen computer graphics package, 3D Studio Max. After these practice projects were completed, I applied what I had learned to a final, 30 second computer animation of my own design. The thesis materials include my practice and final stories and storyboards, a CD containing my practice images and animations, as well as my final animation and a paper documenting the project and my processes.
