Class 3 Audit Program

If you have the basics of Design and Animation down pat, but need a strong push with improving your conceptual, storytelling and production skills, then this may be perfect for you. Ever wonder how pros come up with ideas? Or how someone stays on track time wise? We'll put on the director, art director and producer caps for 12 weeks, and explore the real world critical thinking that goes into a making successful project. After the course, you should be more confident in taking on a whole project creatively and logistically, and your work will be more considered, unique and attention grabbing.

* A screen based drawing tablet like a Cintiq is not essential, but recommended for the first half of the class.

* This class is more demanding time wise than class 1 and 2. A minimum of 12hrs a week for homework is recommended.

"Getting critique from a trained professional really helps to find what kinds of things to focus on. I've had a lot of "aha!" moments when the mentor pointing things out to me."

- Wolfram Friele, Netherlands

"The mentors helped so much with creative feedback, that would force you to think critically instead of giving you the answers to a design or animation problem."
