Learn Animation, The Beginner's guide

By Maria Avramova, Award-winning Director, Designer and Animator

Language: English

This course is for you

In this course you will learn the basics of Animation. You don´t need any previous knowledge of drawing or animation to start. I will guide you step by step, using very simple shapes to create likable characters and show you how to approach body mechanics, timing and character. We will go through the animation principles and how they can help you become a better animator. You will get an insight in some very simple apps that you can download today for free (if you choose the light version) and start animating with a digital pen. But you can use pen and paper as well and take pictures of your drawing to animate them on iMovie or other apps you have on your phone. This course is very easy to follow and a perfect start for you who have been doubting the idea of becoming an animator, or who have found the other programs too overwhelming.
