Is there a specific reason why you chose this specific topic/themes?
I've received many questions on my socials about my work and its process, but I've never gotten the chance to answer their questions. This class serves as a collection of answers to the questions I've always been asked. This class will teach you everything you need to know to create your own worlds and stories!
What makes your class different from other classes?
I believe that indie animation production is different from studio production. It doesn't hurt to have a specialization, but you first need to be a generalist. With my class, you'll learn about the entire production line for independent animators, and how to be efficient and work professionally with a cheap and mobile setup.
Please share your thoughts on the job market of the industry
The animation industry is big, competitive, and constantly changing. It sounds frightening, but it’s actually very interesting and exciting! As an animator, you will work on projects with people from all over the world, and as a freelancer and independent creator, you will have the freedom to work from anywhere you want!
What is "go-to" or "must-have" tools in your industry, and why?
In animation, the most important thing is to have a good understanding of the basics. Every studio and production will have its own software preferences and modified production lines, be it Paper, Adobe Suite, Blender, CSP, and my usual choice, FlipaClip and Procreate. As long as you have the basics down, you can use all of them with minimal modification
This course will use FlipaClip and Procreate (version 5 and up)
