During the early stages of an animation production, visual development artists are brought onto the project to explore and inspire the visual direction of the film. These designs need to serve the purpose of the story & each artist is often hired for their unique visual style and ideas. In this workshop, Manu Arenas will share with us his experiences on the skills and design thinking needed for animation preproduction. Topics such as character design, props, & environment design will be discussed on how they all contribute the final look of the film.
If you are a fan of Manu's design sense and beautiful artworks, this is a rare and unique workshop not to be missed~!!!
