    A glimpse into the artistic thought process for the use of CGI in Walt Disney Feature Animation’s “Mulan.” This course focused on the unique considerations of integrating 3D computer graphics with traditional 2D animation, as presented by artistic leads and hands-on CGI artists. It did not dwell on the specific techniques for each element, but focused instead on the artistic decisions that were made and the technical approaches that were devised to achieve the final result on screen.
