Diploma in Classical AnimationThe Academy of Animation Arts and Technology
Classical animation is drawn animation and is the most traditional of all animation techniques. Even though cut out, sand and colour animation also involve the creation of the animation aslo involve the creation of the animation on a flat plane of images which are modified little by little continuously and the changes captured by a stop-frame camera pointing down onto the horizontal frame, they are mere extensions to the traditional drawn animation.
In classical animation, the drawings on papers are often precise and well drawn, therefore, it is a very tedious and time consuming progress as the rentire sequence is drawn and painted frame by frame painstakingly with high precision. It requires accurate planning, timing and co-ordination-- that's why Classical Animation often involves many people working as a team.
