So Brandon told me about this site today. His teacher recommended it to his class for those interested in learning how to “act” through their 3D CG subjects. His current crop of courses, geared toward basic work in video game development, does not teach this kind of animation. They teach basic rigging and mastery of many software suites, but not the expressiveness we have come to think of as Capital-A-Animation.
This thing actually looks pretty cool, and the students of this course have produced some pretty impressive final pieces. We’re thinking He’ll finish up at LWTC — soon to be relabeled Lake Washington Technical Institute — and maybe work for a couple years doing rigging and UI and some basic animation, and then maybe return to school to learn this material.
I think he’d love it. Has anyone heard anything about this virtual place? Anyone know anyone who went there?
