We made a monster, you make it move!

General description

Do you like animated 3D movies and/or video games? Have you ever wondered what is necessary to make 3D characters move? Would you like to make them move how you want to? If the answer is yes, this is the course you want to take this autumn! :)

Here you will learn how to set up a 3D model so it can be animated, how to set up controls that are used during the animation process, and finally how to animate using keyframes. The result of this course will be your own short animated movie, so you can show everybody what you have learned.

Are you interested to see city of Maribor and most beautiful parts of Slovenia in our awesome weekend trip that we are planning for you? You will also have the opportunity to see the oldest vine on the Earth.

What are you waiting for? Apply and have greatest time of your life during these 9 days! :)
