About This Class

When people think of frame by frame animation, the first thing that comes to mind is Disney animators creating thousands of drawings to bring characters to life. There's a lot of hard work in this style of animation, but I'm here to show you how it's both fun and easy to learn! I'm here to guide you through the basics, step by step.

In this course I'll teach you how to animate, how to do inbetweens. We'll start with animating basic shapes. Not scary right? And then I'll teach some of the principles of animation. You will also learn easing and timing your animations. At the end of the course, you won't be able to animate like the pros but hopefully you'll learn the foundations to get you started on your animation career. Trust me, once you learn the basics the rest are much easier.  

Here's what you will learn:

* To animate a circle

* Determine which drawings are key drawings

* Inbetweens

* Ease

* Key poses in an action

* Squash and stretch

* Lastly animate a simple character jump
