It is that time of year again, time for 3December!
The Austin event once again is being put together by our own Brad Clark.
This marks the 7th year that Austin has celebrated 3December with Autodesk, starting with Keith Langos animation lecture back in 2004.
This year we have a wide range of speakers and using a mix of software from Autodesk and crossing games, film and short form animation.
This year for the first time, there are three master workshops being held the next day, Saturday December 4th.
9:00 to 11:00 am Rigging Dojo: Rigging Basics Boot Camp (all skill ranges).
Brad and Josh from Rigging Dojo will will cover the big beginning rigging mistakes and how to avoid them. This workshop will help anyone that has to work with a character TD or is wanting to be a character TD. For Modelers that want to understand how to build rig ready meshes to Animators that feel like the rig controls them, we are here to help.
11:30 to 1:30 Radioactive Labs: Demo reel secrets standing out and landing a job.
The folks at Radioactive Labs will help people rework their demo reels, portfolios, and resumes. Our friends in the industry see a lot of people we know are good but their demo reels don’t seem to show it. Let’s make sure that your work really represents the skills we know you possess! Let’s also work on our networking, job searching, and resume/written materials. Since you also need to be able to speak to potential employers, let’s make sure you have good interviewing skills as well.
2:00 to 4:00 pm The Dynamic Animator: Essential techniques for Animation Acting and animation critiques
As a character animator, you are not like an actor; you are an actor.
The Dynamic Animator is an acting workshop designed specifically for animators, taught by acclaimed professional actor and acting coach Trent Moore.
During this two hour workshop, Trent will:
· Explain the fundamental process an actor uses to create and play a character’s actions.
· Explore advanced physical techniques that help create unique and compelling characters.
· Provide a toolbox that animators can use when studying or creating reference materials.
· Review and critique your sample video or demo reels from an actor’s point of view (as many as time allows).
This is insight into the actor’s process from a perspective that you can directly use in your work, and will help you to create unique, complex, and memorable characters that will take your work to the next level.
Trent has been acting on stage and film for more than twenty five years, and is best known for his roles in No Country For Old Men and Friday Night Lights. Learn more about Trent and the workshop at thedynamicanimator.com.
