Come for 1 or 2 weeks! These programs are aimed at beginner to intermediate level students. Because our classes are small groups, instructors can gauge each student's skill level and assign projects appropriately. All students will receive their own DAE 8GB flash drive to store their work on and take home! Join this class to learn the basics of 3D animation! Students will learn how to model, texture and animate a 3d Minecraft character. Once students have learned how to create a character, they will have the opportunity to come up with their own short movie. Students will brainstorm, plan a collaborative project and use their characters however they want. Have them jump, swim, run or do hilarious activities. The possibilities are endless! The goal is to learn the basics of animation using a software package called Blender and how to plan a small short from start to finish. Animation is a difficult field and to help along with the process the instructor will help with the post production process of the project (editing, adding in sounds etc). However students are expected to provide all production material (models, animations, 3d environments, etc). Also please note this class is about learning 3d animation. This is not a class where students play Minecraft. Students are only allowed to play Minecraft during break and for creating the environment during the project phase.
