Welcome to CS125

In this course you will be introduced to the process of making a short computer animated film from beginning to end. It's super fun and usually a lot of work. To learn more about the course, click on Course Missive. Also check out the CS125 FAQs.

CSCI 1250 will not be offered in Fall of 2018. Professor Meier will be on sabbatical. It will be offered again in Fall of 2019.


There are no fixed prerequisites for the class, but you must have some in-depth background in computer science, computer graphics, a related area like filmmaking, or in some aspect of visual art. Your background does not have to be from a formal course, but you will have to explain or demonstrate it. If you have an online portfolio or website, you can provide a link in your application. This is not necessary, but can give us a better picture of you. Hope to see you at the first class! In the mean time, you can read about the course in the missive and syllabus.
