To start you will know the work of Becho and Mab, who will tell you about their influences and will take a tour of some of their works, from the oldest to the most recent, such as Can Can Club.

Before starting to animate, you will learn to create an adequate workspace, both in the physical set and in the digital world, installing the necessary software to make your animations. Mab and Becho will give you some tips to make the most of your use.

At this point, it will be time for action. You will learn, through animation exercises, to manage the weight (rebound, will and transformation) of your objects.

First you will work in a 2D environment and, once mastered, you will go to 3D.

What is this course's project?

You will create a curtain or brief animation in plasticine, exploiting its plasticity and flexibility to the maximum.
