VISUAL EFFECTS*

Section and Number: 
CAT 385

(Formerly CAT 285)

Technology has made it possible for filmmakers to wrap and reinvent traditional narrative concepts of time, space, and personal identity. Using CAT's Green Screen Studio and AfterEffects, Commotion, and Combustion software, you will learn such techniques as track mattes, animated masks, motion morphs, time remapping, green screen production, particle systems, rotoscoping, and 3D composting. Drawing on such diverse art forms as surrealism, physical comedy, science fiction, and music video, you will experiment with these effects in your own short movies.
