  • Speakers & Class Policies | Fall 2023

    ANGD 4100 Students: Professor Mishler is the instructor of record.
    ANGD 5100 Students: Professor Watkins is the instructor of record.

    Please direct questions about the course to the appropriate instructor.


    Grading is based entirely on attendance. The scale is as follows:

    0 Absences - A
    1 Absence - B
    2 Absences - C
    3 or more Absences - F

    Attendance will be taken either via zoom or via sign-in sheet. If class is offered face-to-face, you must sign the sign-in sheet for credit. If class in online, you must have a Zoom handle that is your 'real' name.
    NOTE: This class may have sessions in person and online.

    We will have 10 - 12 meetings per semester with speakers from industry scattered throughout. Check this thread weekly for updates. We will also discuss industry trends, watch various pieces of animation, go over new technology and techniques, etc.
