40 DAY IN DEPTH COURSE WHOSE OBJECTIVE IS TO PRODUCE A PROFESSIONAL SHOWREEL ANIMATION
This is the most in-depth course we run. aim is to make the student a fully-fledged professional. In this course we will follow the examples in Richard William’s ‘The Animator’s Survival Kit’ for character animation. For object animation we will go deep into hierarchical structures, motion paths and animating effects and deformers. For rendering we will look at the differences between Pixar’s RenderMan and Maya’s integrated Arnold engine. The objective of this course is to produce a professional showered animation that demonstrates complete familiarity with all essential Maya functions.
