with CRISTIAN SPAGNUOLO
Bring your career to a new level by learning from the best professionals in the global VFX and Game industry.
Join our Bootcamp “CGI Fundamentals” and build the strong foundations you need to understand the new production challenges and start your career in the Entertainment Industry.
This course will teach all the basics of asset creation focused on the 3D animation industry and how to follow the entire 3D character animation pipeline from start to finish.
The path will start from the initial concept phase guiding through all the different production phases to teach what it takes to transform an idea into a full 3D Asset, then students will create texture and work on the look-dev before moving into lighting to make it look “real”.
Ultimately, since the character will be talking, walking, or even flying, the students will learn how to build the rig (the skeletal structure) for the animator to bring to life the character.
The last module will be dedicated, as a final project, to the creation of a personal reel.
The students will be mentored and supervised by their instructors (real professionals from the industry) through the entire process, and they will finalize all the assets prepared during the course, putting all the material together to showcase them in the best way possible and be ready for their first professional interview.
