Bloopanimation – Animations Foundations
What Will You Learn in the Course?
In this course you’ll learn everything you need to know about the basics of animation.
We’ll start off by covering our bases, going through all the different types of animation, as well as learn the vocabulary to make sure we’re all on the same page.
The 12 Principles of Animation
After understanding the basics, we’ll dig deep into the famous 12 Principles of Animation, established by old time Disney animators.
Animating a scene
After we understand the theory and all the basic principles of animation, we’ll dive into animating a whole scene from start to finish. We’ll learn all the skills necessary, including how to shoot reference video, how to work in passes, how to work with cameras in your shots, and even learn some lip-syncing techniques and study walk cycles.
As an animator, I’ve designed this course to be a starting point for anyone interested in pursuing a career in animation.
It is the most basic course we’ve ever created at Bloop Animation so far, and rather than teach you how to use a particular software like Flash or Maya, in this course you’ll learn the fundamental principles of animation.
This course has been the missing piece from our course library, and hopefully it’ll help you get over any concerns you had about learning animation on your own. After taking this course, you can implement what you’ve learned in any animation style you choose: 2D, 3D, and even stop motion. What you learn in this course is applicable to all animation making.
