Why the Motion Capture Workshop?

Motion Capture is quickly becoming an industry standard and the core goal of this workshop is to build a solid foundation of understanding for one of the fastest growing art forms we see in today’s film and video game industries: Motion Capture. We’ll start by learning the most important tools, functions and workflows found within Autodesk MotionBuilder. We want our students to get comfortable with key framing within MotionBuilder, and by the end of the workshop have the ability to modifying and enhancing a performance.

    "iAnimate was such a life-changing experience for me. After years of working in the industry but never quite reaching my full potential or career goals, I noticed that my skills had started to stagnate. I had been interested in online schools for years but the timing had never been just right."

  • Anna White

    "Six workshops and less than two years later, right at the end of my last iAnimate workshop, I was offered a job as an animator on my first feature film, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (at Sony Imageworks). I can't say enough great things about Jason Ryan and the entire iAnimate community, and I owe so much of my success to all of them."

  • Ed Herft

    "I'm really grateful to the team at iAnimate. Without their great tuition and hard work, I'm sure I would not be working in feature film now. They really helped me improve every aspect of my animation."

  • Colin Brown

    I've had multiple interviews where they ask "What game is that from?" when viewing pieces I did in classes 1 and 2. iAnimate has been a huge influence on my demoreel and my job positions recently
