About This Class

In this final class of the Character Animation series, we will learn some advanced character animation techniques that you can utilize to create realistic and believable character actions. We will look at some cool techniques to animate believable eyes since the eyes can help to convey a lot of emotion in a character. We will also make our character talk by learning how to lip sync our character to dialogue. We also tackle some complex character animation scenarios such as interacting with other objects/props as well as other characters. We will end the class by looking at how to animate believable clothes using the Cloth Simulator and animating hair using the Particle System.

By the end of this class, you will learn techniques to help give your character animations that final "pop".

Hi, my name is Danan. I am a Software Engineer by day and a filmmaker/animator/educator by night.

I started out making an animated short film for fun using Blender a few years ago. It was during this time did I realize I had a huge passion for 3D filmmaking. I have spent the past 5 years making animated short films and have learned a great deal about the entire process of filmmaking and animation.

This is something that I do as a hobby. Animation and filmmaking are both something I'm quite passionate about and I spent a few years trying to learn and master this skill. Through heaps of trial and error and researching on my own, I feel I have come a long way. I would now like to impart this knowledge towards others who feel a similar way. 

I know very well, animated filmmaking is hard. Very hard in fact. One of my main aims, is to make the learning process easier for other people. Feel free to check out any of my courses and I hope I have helped you in your quest to achieve your dream! :)
