From modeling to rigging to animation and lighting, by the end of the course you will have learned the basics of each of the disciplines that are used to create computer animated stories. All materials will be provided. We have a lab of new iMacs running Autodesk Maya. This course is designed to be an entry-point into animated filmmaking, so no previous experience is necessary – just a passion for the art of animation and a willingness to step into the role of animator. 10 afternoon sessions on Thursdays: 9/26, 10/3, 10/10, 10/17, 10/24, 11/7, 11/14, 11/21, 12/5, 12/12 For ages 16 and older.
