Alex himself is a veteran Animator, having professional experience of 25+ years in the Animation industry. Through the webinar of ‘How to animate animals and creatures’, he will share various industry standard animation tips and tricks. He will also teach regarding how to think and execute different animation styles for different animals and creatures. It varies movie to movie and depends on various parameters like story line, characteristics, genre of movie (comedy, realistic, futuristic, romantic etc.) and more. Ultimately, it all depends on animator’s approach for character animation.
The biggest challenge of animating animals and creatures is that they are non-human characters. It requires a great amount of detailed study and keen observation for such animation. As mentioned earlier, it lays its foundations in various parameters. Rule of thumb is not to get carried away in too many technical details, which might overcome the essence of character animation. So, the animator has to work very carefully. He/she can use stock footage videos for reference or can do acting for animation by himself / herself.
Video clip references, thumbnail sketches and animation pipeline of following blockbuster Hollywood movies will be shown by Alex Williams during the webinar.
- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
- The Lion King
- Chronicles of Narnia – Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Don’t miss the chance to learn from the Pro Animator himself. Webinar will end after Q&A session.
