About the Animation Class Kassel

The Department of Animation at the School of Art and Design Kassel seeks to impart students with an appreciation of animation as a distinct form of artistic expression. The Department’s spatial and organisational proximity to the Departments of Fine Art, Graphic Design, New Media and Film is of great assistance and value to this teaching process.

Professor Thomas Meyer-Hermann, together with his assistants Martin Schmidt and Kazimierz Bendkowski, is dedicated to providing students with a sound foundation in classical animation skills. Once they have mastered the basics, students are subsequently introduced to the wide range of possibilities offered by more recent developments in the discipline, such as experimental techniques, interactive forms of narration and digital production techniques.

Due to intense cooperation with the New Media Department and exhibitions like “Drück mich” (engl.: ”Play with me!”) at the ITFS 2009 in Stuttgart, some computer games were created with great focus on animaton. The game „Ulitsa Dimitrova“ by Lea Schönfelder was one of the winners at the student competition at the „Independent Games Festival“ in San Francisco last year.
