6 Weeks Tutorials Arrangement

About the course

Welcome to 6 Weeks Animator Incubation! Here you will be learning 12 principles of animation in 6 weeks. The ones developed by Walt Disney Studios a hundred years ago.It’s what they used to become the very best in their time, because their characters looked alive, expressive and had personality.

Every single week we will come with a challenge, for a total of 6 epic challenges. You will be asked to do your short animation combining the principles you learned every week with your imagination. We will pick out best work for every challenge and give out our prizes.

Another cool thing is that we will be having a Q&A session. Mark and Constanza will be there for answering all of your questions.

Finally, there are two exclusive benefits for you! Everyone who enters this training will get free access to 30-day full version of Cartoon Animator 4 Pipeline. Anyone who buys certain graphic display series can get 12-month full version.

We really hope to see you inside and wish you the biggest progress! Can’t wait to see what animation you will create in the training!
