Studio Hours start this Sunday! We'll begin breaking into groups and brainstorming on our first film projects. In addition, we'll be holding a brief tutorial about brainstorming and storyboarding.

Welcome to the MIT Animation Group website! If you haven't heard of the MIT Animation Group before, here's a brief summary of what it is:

The purpose of the MIT Animation Group is to provide an environment where MIT students can both express their creativity through an art form of their choice and collaborate with other artists who specialize in different art forms. In addition, the MIT Animation Group is intended to expose students to the art of animation and film production, and to let students learn about these arts from their peers and industry experts.

If you are an MIT undergraduate or graduate student interested in joining, feel free to contact us as described below in the Contact section.
