Creating Animation Together with Hiroyuki Aoyama
Hands-on Workshop ART
AnimeFest 2019
Saturday 3:00PM for 2h in P1
Animation Director Aoyama, will teach some basics of animation and then select several members from the audience to join in to create a collaboration piece. Each participant’s drawings will be digitized and imported into software during the workshop to compile into an animation cut. This workshop is a fantastic opportunity for both budding and seasoned artist alike to collaborate with a top professional in the industry. Due to time constraints and a limited quantity of tools, it will likely not be possible for everyone to collaborate first hand, but everyone is welcome to watch and enjoy the process together. Don’t miss this one of a kind event!
