What is the purpose of this course?

Learning how to take advantage of the current technology and make it work for you instead of working against it. 3d animation can be technologically intimidating, and with so many different options on how to work, it can also be very overwhelming to deal with. In this course, Kevin will give you a systematic approach that includes the old school ways that 2d animators used and the new workflows that take advantage of the computer and make the program work for you.
