The main purpose of this seminar is to introduce the basic ideas of computer graphics. Exemplary topics as they occur in the process of generating an animated feature-film will be discussed. The seminar will try to cover the entire pipeline from the storyboard to the final movie, thus giving detailed insight in how computer-assisted animation is done today. The focus will be on computer graphics, but there will be other topics that address more artistic views as well.
To successfully participate in this seminar, the attendants have to write a scientific short-paper (6 pages) using the ACM-style template with a double-column layout. Additionally, they have to prepare a talk which should last 25 minutes. Both, papers and talks can be written or held in German or English, with German being preferred.
