About This Class

81d4cf0b

This class will get you started on how to model, render, animate, and visualize data using the power of 3-dimensional design, and give a foundational overview of the 3D software package, Autodesk Maya. Graham has been using this software to create a wide variety of information design projects at The New York Times, and will relate these skills to work created in the journalism environment and beyond.

We recommend taking Graham's first Skillshare class, Animated Information Graphics: using data and motion to reveal the story, as well, which takes a broad stroke approach, and teaches through a wide range of examples how to use data and motion to create compelling visual stories.
