This course will introduce any animators with beginner to intermediate experience how to bring existing work or animation ideas they want to generate digitally in virtual reality using their favourite animation software and bringing it into the Unity Engine. The course will explore Unity3D and its many features, including how to work with their own animation system and virtual reality tools embedded in its software for a streamlined workflow for artists and animators.

Marishka Zachariah is a game developer, designer and digital artist who partakes in many other projects involving VR, AR, UI/UX and narrative design, and has an immense passion for indie games and accompanying alternative controllers that bring strong and unique narratives, art styles and game mechanics.
