The 3DCA course takes participants through a series of lectures, assignments and mini-productions of increasing complexity in the field of 3D character animation, from concept to polish. Under the supervision of guest teachers, all active animation professionals, the participants are introduced to the Maya modelling and animation software and to 3D character animation through a series of exercises designed to transfer the classical 2D animation principles onto a 3D platform.
Focus will lie on the basic animation principles, body mechanics and physical action during basic training and then move on to the advanced concepts of pantomime acting and dialogue animation. The course culminates in a 4,5-week final project, each student’s showreel masterpiece; a 20-30 seconds animation.
The deadline for applications is Friday 29th November 2019. Please visit the course website for more information: https://animationworkshop.via.dk/en/programs-and-courses/3d-character-animation
