Rigging Dojo

Rigging Dojo was founded to help artists overcome the obstacles of computer animation production by focusing on teaching the art and science of character rigging.

We provide 101 level and personal customized training for schools, studios and artists looking to learn new skills or update existing ones.

Our apprenticeship programs have a true mentor-mentee based approach much like actual production. Our mentors work with you to achieve your learning goals, providing a level of personalized online training unique to Rigging Dojo.

Custom training from Rigging Dojo helps students improve techniques regardless of skill level for skinning and deformations, scripting (MEL and or python), mechanical rigging , skeleton design, tool creation, animation UI and pipeline improvement,setup and motion capture editing and more.

If you are not ready quite yet for the intensity of the apprenticeship course, our 101 courses offer professional guidance in a team setting with a slower pace and a focus on foundations for production character TDs.
