The Animation Collaborative is proud to present the Animation Demo and Lecture Masterclass with instructor Michal Makarewicz, Lead Animator at Pixar Animation Studios!
Geared toward students and experienced animators alike, this masterclass discusses animation from a variety of artistic perspectives, breaking down and explaining the simplest to most complex theories, ideas, and choices. This course focuses on a layered approach and features in-depth lectures with corresponding live demonstrations in Autodesk Maya.
