Build upon your animation fundamentals.

At this point, you have a grasp of Maya and Twelve Principles of Animation. In this course, you'll collaborate with your tutor by brainstorming ideas and goals. We'll cover how to animate rigs in Maya. We’ll start slow, animating fun pantomime shots with our robot rig ED-405; experiencing happy, sad, or excited emotions. From there, we'll begin exploring full body poses and the impact of body language.

Once you feel comfortable handling a full body character rig, you will animate a series of short, simple assignments in which a character will experience different emotions. During the last four weeks, you’ll animate a single, more complicated shot, in which a character walks in and changes from one emotion to another. The goal is to get you really good at animating simple pantomime performances!
