IMPROV for 3d animators

 with Ere Santos.

Join LIVE this fall the multifaceted PRO, Ere Santos, in our brand new course "IMPROV for 3d animators." We are going to be pushing Toyrig's acting skills, & YOURS to the next level in a truly unique course, that seeks to squeeze and nurture your creativity and imagination.

Grow as a 3d animator with on the fly improvisation techniques!


How does this class work?

Each week will be broken up into two classes. The first class of the week will always start with some improv followed by a discussion style lecture on improvisation principles followed by rounds. It can be tricky to draw connections between improvisation and animation, so the second class of the week will be a live animation demo, demonstrating how the principles of improv are applied. The class will collaboratively decide through improv what is animated during the live demos.

What will students learn?

The purpose of this course is to build creative confidence. When you’re working on big budget projects, the expectation to create unique choices can be daunting, but with this course, you will be able to practice skills that will give you a creative edge. The skills gained from improv are also very important for developing yourself professionally. Things change constantly on productions and being able to adapt and thrive is one of the most important skills to have. On top of that, there will be workflow tips and tricks that will be shared on a daily basis, that will help increase your speed and confidence.

Key points:

  • Ideation.

  • Collaboration.

  • Plussing boring ideas.

  • Dealing with creative changes.

  • How improv skills apply professionally.
