Course Detail: ANDC204 - ANIME & JAPANESE CULTURE: DIRECTOR'S CUT (Middle & High School)
ANIME & JAPANESE CULTURE-DIRECTOR'S CUT: Imagination and skills merge in this exploration of Anime and Japanese Culture. Go deeper into the minds of groundbreaking Japanese anime directors, like Hayao Miyazaki, Mamoru Oshii, Shin'ichiro Watanabe, Isao Takahata, and Tezuka, to analyze different interpretations, share opinions, and understand the hidden messages inside these films.
Students will watch anime classics, explore foundational themes and how they are distinctly rooted in Japanese culture. Students will be introduced to anime software by using iPads and transforming a flip-book story into their own digital anime to share with family, friends or even on social media. This class is meant to compliment Anime and Japanese Culture. However, students with experience drawing and/or developing story boards are all welcome to join this course.
LUNCH: Students staying for full day or for both morning and afternoon sessions can bring or buy their lunch. All students will eat lunch on Campus in The Commons, a small food court.
