3D Animation Workshop

How to open your 3D eye

The workshop presents a sensitive approach to 3D film-making. It points out the common mistakes one may face when creating a 3D short film as well as gives practical tips on how to resolve a specific case and give the «soul» to a 3D character. The technique used will be 3D, but with a particular approach of a sensitive 3D, which helps to make 3D less cold and also highlights the technical errors and resolves them. Using basic shapes (such as spheres, cones, cylinders), we will scan the menu of 3DS Max software to generate technical accidents and apply alternative solutions.
