Hayley Morris, animator and director with Curious Pictures, will teach the fundamentals of movement and timing through clay and object animation. The class will include an introductory lecture and then will proceed to hands-on experimentation with movement, materials and lighting. Three professional animation work stations will be provided. Students will come out of the class with a basic understanding of the animated process, an appreciation for the art form and a dvd of their animated film.

Hayley Morris is a director, animator and artist. She received her B.F.A in Film/Animation/Video from the Rhode Island School of Design where she specialized in stop-motion animation. At RISD she developed a love for the tactile and hand-made. Her senior film “Undone” got the attention of Curious Pictures in NYC, and she was added to their roster of directors shortly after graduating. “Undone” went on to screen in festivals around the world and won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Animated Short at Slamdance in 2009. Hayley has been featured in Boards Magazine’s “Directors to Watch” issue and SHOOT Magazine’s “New Directors Showcase.” She has been bringing her unique style to commercials and music videos, and is in the process of developing a new short film.
