With an emphasis on character animation, this course will explore the whole production pipeline of 3D Animation from initial concept to rendered result through the use of Maya. Through a series of technical assignments, in class demonstrations, and guest lectures from industry professionals, students will come to learn the basic principles of animation and work up to more advanced techniques. Some specific animation areas that will be covered include locomotion, pantomime/acting, dialogue, set driven keys, and blend shapes. Students will also learn more technical/advanced approaches to other production areas such as modeling, texturing, rigging, rendering/lighting, and layout.
