The talented Andrés Bedate - animator for "Spiderman into the Spiderverse" from Sony Pictures Imageworks is preparing an online course with complete spiderverse themed Body Mechanics tips&techniques.

What will students learn?

There are three main goals in the course: First, learn how the workflow is in some of the biggest animation studios. Second, improve your body mechanics skills like in the “Spiderman into the Spiderverse” movie that won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film. And third, you will learn how to do your blockings in a clean and organised way so that you can handle the splining in a later stage.

How Does This Class Work?

We will go step by step learning the process of blocking your shots from a simple layout until the blocking plus. We will see why we need to spend as much time as necessary in this stage so that we minimize the changes in the splinning stage. I will show some tools and techniques that I find necessary and important in your day to day.

NOTE: Course available on Pre-sale now with very special pricing. Entire course will be available February 26, 2021. (*Pre-sale pricing subject to change as module drip release takes place before that date & we get closer to full course release.)
