Animation Workshops are a series of courses that teach essential skills about a specific topic within animation. Under the guidance of the instructor, students will engage in rigorous study about a specific subject matter. The goal of Animation Workshops is to produce work that illustrates the skills learned. These courses are open to all CCA students who have completed CORE D1 and 4D.
This class is an introduction to simulation based Special Effects and Character Effects. Students will be exposed to the key tools of industry visual effects artists: particles, fluids, cloth, hair, rigid body dynamics. Emphasis will be placed on applying these new skills effectively while also being able to present the work with quality rendered images. The course will be devoted to bi-weekly assignments, culminating with a final project.
