Previsualization as an art form is growing rapidly and has become a fixture within most companies. It is a vital component of production linking the worlds of production with pre-production. Within this domain the specialist generalist reigns supreme.
The 11 week course, specially designed for iAnimate, will teach students the fundamentals of staging, pacing, layout, camera and scene setup. The objective is to get the students comfortable and confident with translating pre-established storyboards into a working, coherent 3D sequence.
