3D Motion Designer
Hello, My name is Jan, a professional 3D motion designer and VFX artist with 10+ years of experience in the field. I had a chance to work for studios like The Mill, MPC, Mainframe, Aixsponza, and Golden Wolf, but also for less known ones like Studio Oficina, where they put all their love to work, and other studios.
In past years, I had a chance to work on a couple of award-winning projects and had the opportunity to speak at many conferences (festivals) like IBC in Amsterdam, Animago, Pechakucha Night, and Mouvo. I'm currently working as a freelance creative director and 3D motion designer. During my time as a freelance artist, I have worked on broadcast TV shows, commercials, and music videos, fulfilling the role of VFX supervisor on music video shoots.

Redshift Fundamentals + Text AnimationWe'll start with fundamentals of Redshift and text animation, which are widely used in the 3D motion design industry. Consider this section to be a warm-up lesson. However, the essential text animation will undoubtedly contain an important lesson about Mograph, so don't skip anything.
X-Particles Logo RevealFollowing our initial scene, we will create a logo reveal using another widely used 3D motion design technique. During this lesson, we are going to explore X-Particles in depth, alter wind and speed, engage in fundamental exercises, and adjust camera angle and tangent.
Wolf Head ExplosionIn our third animation, we'll first learn how to work with various types of assets. As it's time-consuming to model each and every object that is used in an animation scene, online assets can save tons of time. You'll not only learn how to light and shade properly but also how to use more X-Particles and Voronoi Fracture to achieve the greatest results.
X-Particles WormholeAfter learning how to use X-Particles across different animation styles, we will learn the way to generate X-Particles from animated Splines. You will also work on and experiment with other shapes here. This approach is also widely used by motion design specialists.
Car Chase Infinite LoopBeginning with our 5th animation lesson, we will transition from industry-oriented animations to fun and engaging animations for your own projects or social media postings. Loop animations are one of the animation styles that I enjoy creating and posting on social media, and thankfully, many people enjoy them as well. I'll walk you through every step of making interesting loop animations like a pro.
Matchmoving + Bonus LessonLearn from asset management to X-Particles and Voronoi Fracture, from basic modeling to complicated cloth techniques. Additionally, a bonus lesson with award-winning intergalactic mushroom animations It is a more than hour-long fast-forwarding lesson that includes a step-by-step approach.

3D Motion Designer, Jan Sladecko
Why did you choose this specific topic?
I chose these topics for my online class with the aim of providing a comprehensive learning experience. The foundational 3D animation scenes (Scenes 1-4) were chosen because they cover techniques that are not only widely used but also form the backbone of professional animation work. These skills are essential for students aspiring to enter the industry or enhance their existing skill set. Additionally, the engaging social media animations (Scenes 5-6) allow students to apply their knowledge in fun and practical ways, which is essential for personal projects or to boost social media presence. Lastly, the bonus intergalactic mushroom scene (Scene 7) ties everything together, challenging students to apply all the techniques they've learned throughout the course.
What makes your class different from other classes?
What sets my class apart is the combination of industry-focused education and practical application. I'll not only teach the theory but also provide hands-on experience through interactive exercises and projects. Furthermore, the class offers a clear progression from foundational techniques to advanced, engaging animations, ensuring that students have a well-rounded skill set. Additionally, the bonus lesson at the end challenges students to create a stunning scene that incorporates all the techniques learned during the course. Finally, this is the first Coloso Global's Dictionary course recorded in English for English-speaking students.
What would be the most important takeaway from your class?
Although this course contains gold throughout the curriculum, the ability to create professional-quality 3D animations tailored for diverse purposes is the most important takeaway. Students will not only attain a thorough understanding of industry-standard techniques, but they will also learn how to effectively apply them to improve their social media presence or pursue a career in animation. Furthermore, they will have the confidence to handle complicated projects on their own, armed with the information and abilities gained throughout the course.
This course will use Cinema 4D, Redshift and After Effects.
