By the end of the 10 weeks , students will have a solid understanding of the principles of animation and how to apply them to their own animation projects. They’ll get a better sense of how they can use Maya and its tools, and not letting the software dictate how to animate.They will be able to show animation exercises involving animation fundamentals, simple biped body mechanics, strong and appealing poses, and a stylized walk cycle. And finally, as the industry and the tools are evolving quickly, we will look into mastering Maya and develop an efficient workflow in order to be production ready , pushing students both artistically and technically.
