Full Body Acting  (FBA)  11 weeks

Workshop 2 Start: June 19, 2018 (Tues)

11 Weeks
Closing the gap between your vision and the technology. 

 Student picks an appropriate audio clip that resonates with him/her, and will choose acting poses that support the emotional contact of the dialogue.  Emphasis on great storytelling poses and facial animation shapes, how to create a reference video,  raising the standard to feature quality animation, and timing and spacing.  The end product will be a shot worthy of your show reel. WS2 is designed to get you ready for feature animation.  Working from reference you learn how to act for reference and then how to pick the right key poses. We cover learning about the specifics of acting,  the subtleties of movement  and little technical tricks along the way to speed up the work flow.  

Hey Jim,


I am really glad that I did this workshop as it gave me perfect understanding of basics like how to selecting right dialogue, how to make acting choices and most importantly how to incorporate that acting reference in shot.


I would definitely recommend this workshop for someone who wants to learn and have a feature quality animation shot in their reel.
