3D Animation is increasing in popularity and the field of 3D animated video, computer, and interactive games has grown remarkably and continues to expand. Campers will learn the principles of animation (i.e. movement, timing, weight, character development, etc.) using Maya – the industry standard for high-end 3D computer animation. Students progress through basic modeling, motion and rendering exercises. Your child will learn the skills required to create and produce their very own 3D animation character or short clips. Children will get to create their own character’s storylines and receive assistance making their ideas come to life. Throughout the week they will learn expert tips and tricks on how to make their movie shine. Kids will marvel at this movie maker camp.
