Discover what it takes to create a 3D animated film and learn what it takes to be a professional animator during this two-week intensive. Begin with the basics of both software and animation principles, then create in-depth examples demonstrating what you have learned.

Class culminates in a gallery-style showcase of artwork and a screening in our state-of-the-art theater of all final projects; family and friends are encouraged to attend the showcase.

This class is intended for students interested in learning the process of animation. Students will be working in the studio for the majority of the hours that class is in session. This class is recommended for students with some experience in animation.
