Pixel Mini

Did you enjoy our Pixel Challange Master Classes we had a few months back? Well, we've got more. Pixel Mini Event (Pixel Challenge without the challenge) in Quebec City is a side event that will feature two iAnimate Instructors that will be held at the Loews Hotel Le Concorde on Tuesday October 29th during Cartoon Connection Canada, an international convention of animation and video game professionals:

Ken Fountain will be giving a master class on using attitudes and body language to interpret, simplify and caricaturize complex expressions in an animated character. Stephen Melagrano will talk about the process of creating an animated character, from its body mechanics to its emotional credibility.

The pixel event will happen during the Cartoon Connection Event on October 28 to 31th.

We're really pleased to bring these speakers to Quebec City. This is a great opportunity for animation professionals to gain in-depth knowledge and added experience.
