3D Character Animation

Under the supervision of guest teachers who are all international and European animation professionals, the participants will be introduced to the Maya software and to 3D character animation through a series of exercises designed to transfer the classical 2D animation principles onto the computer and a 3D platform. Focus will lie on body mechanics and physical action during the basic training and then move on to the advanced concepts of pantomime acting and lip sync.

The course will culminate in a 4-week final project which is to be each student’s showreel masterpiece; a 20-30 seconds animated short film or computer game intro. You can find a detailed program in the right side menu.
