The Animator's Survival KitTM
"What has cost me millions of dollars and at least 30 years to learn, I'm ramming out in 3 days"
These 3 days are for professionals and cover the knowledge of the underlying principles of animation which apply to any style or approach to the medium, including computer animation.
This course is about how things move and specific work methods used to make drawings live and breathe, think, and give a sustained commanding performance. Williams will demonstrate his points with drawing, performance, and personal and professional film clips.
