Background images
How does the future look like for 2D animation?

Globally, we're seeing an increased need and value for 2D animation in various industries: from commercials, music videos, and more. Especially since traditional animation techniques are no longer limited to 2D animation and have expanded into other fields, including 3D animation. Instead of learning 2D animation from a technical side, understanding and practicing the basics of traditional animation techniques is considerably more beneficial in becoming a better animation director.

What are your strengths
as an animation director?

My strength is in squash, versatility, smooth transitions, and a good sense of timing. As part of my process, I constantly research different ways to capture attention and entertain others with motions. To do so, you have to observe every motion around you, dissect it into frames, and recognize how each frame connects to another.

What are the primary take-away
from this class?

This class will include everything required to animate various motions using frame-by-frame animation techniques, from theories to personal tips. You will be able to animate anything using traditional animation after obtaining a basic understanding of motion (speed, weight, and more) and grasping standards for improving motion analysis.

Who should take this class?

For beginners in 2D animation, this class provides knowledge and insights into traditional animation. For those with basic knowledge who still struggle, this class serves as a way to develop observation and motion analysis skills. Overall, these carefully curated class exercises will help you discover what's missing from your animation and how to improve it.
