FilmPEI’s Teresa Kuo is running this 12-week online course for those interested in learning animation.
Participants must have access to a computer to use the necessary free software.
FilmPEI will provide a drawing tablet so participants may follow along with Kuo’s lessons using their own artwork and creations.
There will be homework outside of the scheduled class time.
“The main goal is by the end of the course they’ll know the main principles of animation,” Kuo said. “I think animation is kind of limitless.”
THERE WILL BE A FREE ONLINE Q&A SESSION ABOUT THIS COURSE ON NOV. 2. (contact email@example.com to register for this info session)

Much of Teresa’s filmmaking reflects on her duality as a Taiwanese Canadian and her unique experience growing up in PEI. Sometimes her work follows a linear storyline, other times her focus is the mundane of a lived experience or feeling. Themes of details and aestheticism often appear in her work. Teresa has produced animations for Vince the Messenger’s music video, “Black Sheep,” and animated stage designs for Ebb and Flow: Tides of PEI Settlement, a show which she also produced.
