Switching from 2D animation to 3D using Blender

Jorge Ribeiro

Saturday 26 October Theater 30

As a 2D freelance animator, I always felt the necessity to evolve and to keep up with the market. From traditional animation drawn on paper, the trends made me switch to (but not only) flash animation, stop motion, Photoshop animation drawn on Cintiq, After Effects and inevitably to 3D.

Finding Blender as the right tool and how I used it in my freelance work. Now as a director, working on a TV series, how does the pipeline for a TV show work in this small studio. How does the thought process changes when animating in 2D and 3D. How do the Blender tools help me to deliver the principles of animation in a different approach than when animating on paper.
