Experiment with 3D scanners, webcams, audio inputs and motion sensors as tools for DIY digital animation. Instead of relying on traditional key frame techniques, class participants will learn how recent advancements in image and motion capture technology have created new opportunities for artists to use the body to animate scenes. Participants will scan their own bodies and/or personal objects as the basis for a final project.
Dates: July 15 & 16, noon – 4:00pm both days
Price: $165 [$150 + $15 materials fee]
