The John C. Hench Division of Animation and Digital Arts was born more than twenty years ago with several film graphics courses taught by Professor Gene Coe. In 1985, Dr. Richard Weinberg, an accomplished software developer, was brought on board as a joint appointment with the School of Engineering to create the USC computer animation laboratory. Together, Weinberg and Coe designed the original MFA in Film, Video, and Computer Animation Program. Vibeke Sorensen, the founding director of the CalArts Computer Animation Lab, joined the Division in 1994, and became the first Chair of the newly established Division from 1995-1999 before departing the division in 2004. In the fall of 1997 and with help from Mr. John C. Hench, the school opened its newly remodeled Animation Studio and welcomed its newest faculty member and artist, Professor Christine Panushka, formerly of CalArts who chaired the division from 1999-2003. In the fall of 1998, two time Academy Award nominee and animator Ishu Patel joined the faculty, as did then visiting artist and now Associate Professor Kathy Smith who chaired the division from 2004-2009. Today the John C. Hench Division offers a BA and MFA in Animation and Digital Arts, as well as an undergraduate minor and is part of a inter-divisional Media Arts & Practice PhD iMAP.

The John C. Hench Division of Animation and Digital Arts is an international and multi-cultural program focusing on animation in all its forms. The fundamental philosophy of the program strongly encourages innovation and experimentation, and it emphasizes imagination, creativity, and critical thinking. Hench-DADA has incorporated into its curriculum a theoretical and critical approach to the development and research of digital art forms as well as an historical understanding of how traditional media, drawing, painting, sculpture, video and installation art have transposed or been incorporated into animation or art in motion.
We have constantly strived to merge new technologies with traditional practice and to encourage the study of the human form, organic media, and gesture as a way to explore complex ideas and emotions across a temporal medium. -Professor Kathy Smith
