Outdoor Animation Workshop 

October 16th (Online) REGISTER HERE

This program features an online workshop “Outdoor Animation” with Isaac King, Director of WhateverTree. “In this online workshop, we’re challenging the controlled studio setting, taking animated ideas outside! How can the textures and materials of the real world inspire and embody animation? How does changing weather, light, and wind affect time-lapse photography? How does animation’s control and precision work in the chaos of outdoor life?”
