WITH KEVIN JACKSON

WHAT'S IT ABOUT?

This course aims to lay the fundamentals of posing. What makes a pose strong? Why is a strong pose important? How do we use our poses to communicate the story clearly to the audience?

Posing is essential to the foundation of animation. You can have strong poses and bad animation, but you cannot have strong animation and bad poses. To put it another way; good animation is built on good poses.

An essential course for those willing to learn 3d animation by the hand of Sony Imageworks' Lead Animator Kevin Jackson and for those looking to revisit the essentials.
