WORKSHOP – Stop Motion to 3D Character Animation
Meticulously devised exercises were rolled today to the final year batch who are all set to jump into 4 months long 3D character animation programme.
It has been a common experience that the passouts of most of the academies are able to attempt 3D modeling, texturing tasks but totally fail to do justice to 3D character animation.
This skill is very less about tools and totally about the Concept and Art. Mastering an Artform takes painstaking effort from the student and highly devised exercises from the mentor/academy that lets the student make right kind of efforts.
One day workshop in stop motion carried on by Parminder Singh, Design and Animation mentor, had exercises which contrasts with the Genre of stop motion exercises that are done to make something exciting and entertaining. These were totally meant to give full hold on the most basic concepts which actually are responsible for very high end 3D character animation.
And the best part of the workshop was that the passouts of the last batch were in a position to actually mentor all the students during the workshop. Mangat, Ramandeep Kaur and Linken were at the forefront.
