Do you have a good understanding of body mechanics and want to take them to the next level? Put your skills to the test in this workshop! In the Dynamic Action Workshop we’ll be focusing on creating much more than just body mechanics exercises. We’ll put all that you’ve learned up to this point into the creation of an action shot! We’re going to begin diving into who the character is, what the character wants, and how that influences their actions all the while making it look and feel awesome!
How does this class work?
Each class in this workshop will have the same structure: Animation Inspiration, Lecture, Workflow Demo, Workshop, and then Questions. Each student will have the option of choosing either 1 long shot or 2 shorter shots. In the assignments created by the students we’ll be focusing on incorporating dynamic action in animation, character intent and motivation, some kind of super power or weapon, action sequence cinematography, and lots more! It should be noted that the shot selection may vary depending on the difficulty of the shot and the number of characters. Throughout the course of the class, students will learn everything they need to know to make their shots successful and work-shopping their personal shots in the process.
What will students learn?
On top of learning more about animation in general, students will learn about the concepts and building blocks of making satisfying action shots. They will also learn about action shots from a film-making perspective in order to help them understand and dissect it better. They will learn very quickly that in an action shot, clarity is king! No matter how cool something looks, if it’s not clear then what’s the point? Some of the concepts we’ll be going over are: Dynamism vs. Clarity, Rhythm and Accents, Energy and Pacing, Dynamic Posing, and many more!
