In addition, you will be taking the knowledge you learn to create your own original characters. The final assignment of the entire course will be to design your own original iconic 3d character.
We will go beyond the technical skills of Maya to explore the far more important skills of Digital Storytelling. Great animation is only possible when there is a great story to tell. You will discover how to create a storyboard and animatic for your animations, then to use them like a blueprint to create far better animations.
After this course you will be empowered to navigate Maya like a boss. You will learn the tricks and techniques to become an animator and game character designer master. You’ll be so confident with Maya that you will be able to design any character you want. As a bonus, we will be discussing the 12 principles of animation, discovered by the animation pioneers at Disney, and learning to incorporate them into our animations. We will be starting with the basics and moving on to expert level. Anyone with only moderate computer experience will be able to start at the beginning. This course is designed with the high schooler in mind. Ages 14+.
