From the Archives: Animals & Creatures Tips and Tricks with Our Friends from Tippett Studio

By: Animation Mentor

The Animation Mentor crew has been busy since the day we opened the school. We went straight to work with our friends from studios all over. As you can imagine, we’ve compiled a huge resource of animation tips and tricks. And as you can imagine, we get pretty excited when we dig through the archives and unearth a spectacular tutorial that we can share with you all over again.

So without further adieu, please enjoy the following video with our friends/mentors/overall amazing animators — Jim Brown and Brian Mendenhall — from Tippett Studio as they detail the best to way to find your animation workflow:


This is exactly the type of hands-on instruction you receive in our Animals & Creatures: Master Class. The advanced program teaches you — the experienced animator — how to animate fantasy creatures, quadrupeds, and flying creatures. You also learn how to choreograph believable interactions between multiple characters, integrate live-action footage, and tell a different kind of story. These skills are highly-sought after from visual effects studios.

Register now for the Winter 2013 term of the Animals & Creatures: Master Class … then prepare to elevate your work to stand out.
