Animation Bootcamp

Most of us want to work on animated films that will be cherished by future generations. But how do we achieve this goal?

Well, this is where it all begins. This course will lay the foundations you’ll need to get started on achieving this dream.

The fundamentals of animation have evolved throughout the years and CGTarian Instructors have brought all their experience together to take you step by step through each of these animation principles and help you understand the good practices of animation.

During the next twelve weeks, you will learn the 12 basic principles of animation and how we apply them to simple as well as more complex animation.

You are in for a treat because this course will be taught by 7 of the best animators working in the field today. They have prepared lectures that thoroughly describe the core of what makes animation so beautiful and have thus brought their unique individuality to each of their classes.

Our hope with this Animation Bootcamp is to prepare you for what‘s to come if you decide to pursue a career in animation. By the end of these 12 weeks, you will be ready to tackle more advanced courses as you make your way towards becoming a successful animator.

Join us and allow us the honor of introducing you to the art of motion.
