Week one will be dedicated to the creative and conceptual aspects of animation such as composition, framing, montage and storyboarding.
Week two is centered specifically around animation skills. It will contain lots of tipps on acting for animation and animation itself. It will consist of fun exercises such as animating lipsync, fast actions scenes, 2D effects or quadruples walk cycles.
Since we want to keep things flexible, you can also apply for just one week or the other, according to your individual needs.
