In this training, We will explore the use of Grease Pencil through the entire 2D animation production pipeline: Design, story-boarding, scene layout, 2D animation and VFX. A full daily schedule will be discussed and made final with the students who apply.

You will learn how to use Grease Pencil and how to combine 2D elements in a 3D environment.

Technical demonstrations and short exercise assignment will complement our workshop.

This training requires a minimal experience using Blender 2.8 as a 3D tool and some drawing skills!
