Three hours of full dialog shot walk through together with Christoffer Andersen, Senior Animator at Team To, France.
What Do You Get.
The course uses a character from Manoanim APS, the character is included in the course. So not only do you get the class but also a full functioning rig to follow along with.
First Christoffer Introduce the coruse and shows you the overall outline of the proejct you are about to embark on. He talks about the tools he uses but you are expected to know some animation before entering these lectures. Its not a maya introduction. That being said everything is targeted at any animator interested in improving.
Moving on to the blocking part of his animation Christoffer talks about the strenght of a strong pose and a bad pose, being a good animator is also making the character work for the camera. Finding the right silhouette is where most animators struggle. He talks about timing and anticipation.
Spline phase is where the animation curves are getting smoothed out so we can start to see the floating motion in our animation. This technique is used across many studios from big to small.
Once the animation curves are smoothed out Christoffer enters his polishing stage. This is where a shot takes it final 20%, polishing is an essential part of making a good animation, it can be tedious and long and you can hunt down small mistakes in your animation to your hearts desire but without the other stepps a polish will never be worth anything.
Born and raised in Denmark, but currently enjoying life the south of France.
Christoffer has always had a strong interest in all Computer Graphic related aspects, but early on decided to persue character animation as a job, after he graduated from The Animation Workshop in Denmark with a BA in Character animation in january 2013.
The goal is to create appealing, high quality animation be it for animated features, VFX, tv or games.
