Course Specifications:

In early 2020 we hosted an event called "Sparkling the Cartoon" in which Jorge Vigara reproduced his real workflow for the creation of a cartoon acting shot. These are recordings of a live process - meaning, no cuts, no speeds up. Which will help you understand really how much time and detailing takes to do this kind of work. 

Some key aspects you will learn:
- Breakdown of a high performance workflow, frame by frame.
- Key aspects for shot planning and animation design.
- Several tips and tricks in how to pose, do breakdowns and polish.
- Use of tools for following trajectories, spacing and simple drills with Animbot.
