Are you 'fur' real?
Following the success of our Character Walks webinar we're excited to announce our next animation fix, which will see host Alex Williams tackle a fresh topic - animating animals and creatures! Alex will show how each movie that he's worked on required a uniquely tailored (and different) approach to the animation.
Animating non-human characters involves a great deal of research, and also finding ways to apply that research to the character in a way that is entertaining and fun without getting too technical is a challenge. You need to use live action reference, not as a crutch but to make your work feel believable and compelling. Of course, saying it is the easy bit - doing it right is much harder.
What you’ll learn
During the webinar, Alex will show clips from some of the films that he has worked on during his 25+ years of experience in the animation industry, showing the animation approach to different animals and creatures on each movie, including video reference, thumbnail sketches and the overall work method. The movies featured in the webinar include:
- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
- The Lion King
- Chronicles of Narnia - Voyage of the Dawn Treader
As always, Alex encourages any questions that you may have and will answer them during his talk.
