Making an Animated Short Film with Blender
In this course, we will go through the process of creating an Animated short film.
We will start of with how I find inspiration in every day activities, and how to evolve a story so that it will be interesting. From here we will record the reference footage which will be our story board. We will then go into ways of finding locations to tell the story. Next we will focus on sourcing 3D characters and assets from different applications and sources to find the one that suits you. Unfortunately due to licensing, I am able not able to provide that character that is in the example animation. Next we will focus on modeling and texturing the environment. I will go through the basics so that you will get a greater understanding of how to use the 3D application Blender. Once the environment is created, we will then go through the process of creating the actual animation. Here I will show you tips that I use to create the best possible animation with what ever skill level you have. Once we have decided that the animation is as complete, we will go through critiquing and the final polish. We will add sound for the final touch and our short film will come alive.
By the end, we will have a completed short film that can be shown at film festivals.
