Posing the Face is like learning a new language. Each facial pose is a visual symbol representing emotions and sensations that help your characters to send all sorts of information in their performances.

The animated face is generally divided into the eye mask ( brows & eyes ) and the mouth. In order to learn how to do facial acting, first we need to know how to work with these two areas separately, then, how they relate to each other and to the information (or emotions) we´re trying to deliver.
In this course, we will examine the unique characteristics that facial posing has - it´s like learning a new language!
