More Information

Il workshop inizierà con una breve descrizione del percorso intrapreso da Simone negli ultimi otto anni, che lo ha portato a diventare regista dell’animazione per uno degli studi britannici più conosciuti e amati al mondo: Aardman Animations. In seguito Simone presenterà vari argomenti e tecniche per realizzare sequenze animate di qualità e con personalità tramite la Computer Animation, quali:

  • Dagli storyboards all’animazione finale, come si crea ‘the Illusion of Life’

  • "Sentire" il personaggio

  • Usare "squash and stretch" e "smears" per ottenere l’effetto cartoon

  • L’importanza delle pose ed animare "all'interno della posa"

e molti altri trick che potrebbero tornare molto utili agli animatori di domani.
