Work with a partner to create an animated short.
You must learn to divide work by your strengths, problem solve, and manage your time wisely.
Focus on your principles of animation. Keep the models simple so you can animate accordingly.
Use any tutorials necessary to get the animation that you want.
Create a project folder in the Animation folder of the Q: drive in order to share your files. BE CAREFUL! If a file is deleted, it is not recoverable.
