Blender course - Create your own animated short film


Pascal Ferrère writes:

Hi everyone,

A few months ago I released my first animated short film “Tikka” on YouTube. I completed this project alone in 8 months and a few people asked me if I could create a project breakdown video, showing the behind the scene. But rather than making a simple project breakdown video I decided to create an entire course explaining step by step how I did it.

The course is now available on Skillshare. If you use this link you’ll get 1 free month of Skillshare Premium and you’ll be able to take the class for free.

The course is for all levels and everyone interested in filmmaking skills and animation.
Together, we are going to see how to:

- Find an idea for a film
- Write a story
- Define an Artistic Direction
- Work on Character Design
- Create an environment
- Make a script
- Build a storyboard
- Organize the project
- Start 3D modeling
- Work on textures
- Build a rig for your characters
- Prepare the staging
- Do the animation
- Set up the lighting
- Place the cameras
- Render your images
- Finalize the compositing
- Enhance the project with music

By the end of the course you should have a good understanding about the pipeline, the resources and skills needed in order to make your own animated short film.

I hope to see you on Skillshare!
