This course is all about polish: what it is, and what it isn’t. It’s not about saving your shot, but elevating it and getting the most out of your ideas. Getting the most clarity, and getting more believability in your character. The trick to climbing the tower is taking it one step at a time, and build upon each step. If you skip any steps, the tower will collapse, so it’s important to have a strong base. It’s a daunting task, but we will be conquering it together. This will be a very interactive and hands-on class since you cannot learn polish by watching someone tweak curves for hours on end . We will all be starting from the same roughly splined animation file, and working together to finish it - this way we will make sure you learn how to make sure your creative choices are shining in the best light possible.
