Animation Taster Day 7th August

Eagle by Lee Caller
Interested in learning 3D animation, but not sure you want to commit to a whole course? We're running a new Animation Taster Day in London on 7th August, at Escape Studios at 190 High Holborn.

Taster Days are a great chance to learn about character and creature animation, and find out what an animator's job is all about.

You will learn how to use Autodesk Maya and get a hands-on introduction to 3D Animation techniques; the full day costs just £25, and by the end of the day you'll have your own piece of creature animation uploaded to your YouTube channel.  No prior knowledge of Maya - or any software - is required.

Animation Taster Day
This one-day taster course gives you get an introduction to the art of 3D Animation, exploring what it’s like to work as a professional animator.

I'll take you through the animation process from start to finish, ending up with a finished movie file.

Animation Apprentice Method
The Animation Apprentice Method is how we teach animation to our students; it involves 100s of video tutorials, backed up by personal video feedback, and peer-to-peer feedback at our Facebook classroom. We make strenuous efforts to place our students into paid employment in the rapidly expanding animation and visual effects industry.

When and where
The class takes place on Wednesday 7th August at Escape Studios, 190 High Holborn, from 10am until 4pm. To sign up, follow this link. The class costs £25.00, and Escape Studios throw in lunch and coffee for free.

What you will learn
Working with tools such as Autodesk Maya and the Adobe Creative Suite, you’ll get a hands-on introduction to 3D Animation techniques.

By the end of the day you will have your very own piece of finished animation uploaded to YouTube.

I'll be teaching the class; you can see some of my animation here:
