Courses – Rigging Dojo 101

Rigging Dojo Courses are Eight-week long 101 group training sessions.

Gather with like-minded peers in a group 101 training course led by a industry professional mentor.

Our 8 week courses allow you to learn a proper foundation and updated techniques that we see missing in many students and even working professionals, while still having time to balance work and family time.

Depending on student enrollment and mentor availability some examples of 101 course offerings are.

  • Character rigging
  • Face rigging
  • Python scripting for rigging and automation
  • Deformations
  • MotionBuilder animation and rigging

Community networking  and support: Having a support network is important. With the job market in both Games and VFX being turbulent we want to help you build a good network of other TDs at the same level as you. Having a group of people you can work, learn and share with is very important no matter your experience level and is a core part of our 101 courses.

It also has become clear to us and our mentors that while there are some great books and videos on rigging, many people are still not understanding what is needed to successfully work in production. We are committed to address these issues with our courses through direct feedback and critiques by top industry professionals.

Note: Rolling start dates are based on class size, once the class fill up we will email you with the start date.
