There’s a lot of roles involved in making an animated short — story artist, set designer, and character animator to name a few.  Here’s your chance to learn what it takes to truly animate a movie.  Working in a supportive team environment, you’ll create models, landscapes, rigging and animated movements for a final group project.  The course runs 11 weeks and uses the open-source software application Blender to create the project.  Join us for an adventure of creativity.
