How To Animate A Short Film Sequence

by | Aug 22, 2013

Creating a short film on your own is no easy task. At Animation Mentor, our Character Animation Production Track enables you to go through the entire short film process, learn the production pipeline, and create a short film alongside other animators and a mentor. This production track not only teaches you the skills to work with a real production pipeline (the AMP pipeline) but you come out of class with a short film.

To begin working on a production of your work, apply today. If you are an Animation Mentor alumni, no need to apply, register directly into Character Animation and Storytelling Development to begin.
