Western High School’s Digital Animation student learn the creative perspective behind 2D and 3D animation techniques using industry-leading software. As animation continues to thrive at the box office and video game consoles around the world, students will develop the fundamental design principles required to be successful in this booming industry. Using a combination of 2D and 3D software, student will study both traditional and digital animation principles and techniques.

It doesn’t stop there, however.  The single most important element in any form of entertainment is story; and, you guessed it, we’re storytellers.   We understand well the impact a good story can make and we strive to great detail to make our stories dynamic, relevant and memorable.
