COURSE DESCRIPTION:

AnimC is excited to introduce Michal Makarewicz’s first ONLINE DISCUSSION workshop.

This workshop has been created for students who cannot attend the AnimC Workshops in person, and are interested primarily in having the opportunity to bend Michal’s ear.

In this Workshop you will have the opportunity to meet with Michal online; he will have a specific topic each week open for discussion and then as the conversation progresses naturally, new topics of interest to YOU may be introduced and discussed as well.  This is not a critique class and there is no homework. If you are interested in having Michal critique on your work and observe the critiques given to the other students then check out Michal’s Fall Tutoring offerings.

TOPICS OF CONVERSATION:

Performance 1:  Things that I think are important in a performance choices part 1.
Performance 2:  Things that I think are important in a performance choices part 2.
Eyes/Brows:  How do we get them to be believable?
The Production Environment: Taking and implementing notes in a production environment. 
Timing: Most important principle and absolutely necessary for performance.  It needs its own day to talk about.
Polish: Lets talk about all those little things that go into a shot.
Blocking methods/workflows: How many ways are there to work?  Let’s talk about it!
Specificity: One of the most important ideas and absolutely necessary for performance.  It needs its own day to talk about.
Dialogue: Choosing dialogue/ breaking dialogue down.  How I go about it animating it.
Mistakes: What are common mistakes that I see young animators make in shots and Demo Reels.
Subtle Acting: Subtle shots can be hard to animate, so let’s talk about why and ways to do it.
Open Idea Slot (Class votes): Let’s take a poll and see what comes up?
