Screen Skills Ireland Announce Toon Boom Harmony Character Animation Workshop
16 Jul 2019 : News Desk
Screen Skills Ireland
The Toon Boom Harmony – Character Animation Workshop, tutored by Adam Oliver, takes place from 12-16th August.

Toon Boom Harmony is a highly-recognised animation software that aids in bringing 2D animation and full production capabilities to students, freelancers, artists and professional animators alike. 

The aim of the course is to get participants up to speed with the latest version of the software. The course will teach students how to use Toon Boom effectively in a production environment. It will also teach newcomers to Toon Boom how to apply their animation skills within this complex digital world. The course will cover aspects of hand-drawn animation, but it will mainly dedicate its time to the cut-out, rigged style that is popular in the industry right now.

The 5-day intensive workshop aims to rapidly improve understanding of Toon Boom Harmony and produce animation by using methods followed by studios around the world. This course could be a stepping-stone into working in the industry, and can be tailored to specific requirements as each task is undertaken. Each participant will also have exclusive access to online support documentation and character rigs, which will allow for continuity of study even after the course has concluded. 

The course is suited to both relative newcomers to character animation, as well as those looking to improve their skills. Ideally, participants will have some digital animation experience, but this is not essential as the training will progress to more advanced tasks during the week, teaching the software along the way. It is also perfect for animators looking to learn Toon Boom Harmony.

Course Profile

The course will progress through simple to complex tasks, each testing your technical software understanding and help to flex those creative animation muscles. There will also be some valuable practical tips on working in an animation studio environment. Through demonstrations, mini seminars, and exercises the course will cover:

– Applying the fundamentals in Toon Boom Harmony

– How to use the software efficiently for character animation

– Analysing the animatic and optimising your workflow

– Perfecting clean up and colour techniques

– Breaking down the keying process

– Animating with Master Controllers and 360 rigs

– Creating convincing dialogue performance

– Hot fixing rigs for shot by shot success

– Utilising re-use and the library system

– Polishing a scene and working with feedback

…and much more!

 

The workshop will take place from Monday 12thto Friday 16thAugust with a venue in Dublin yet to be confirmed. Places at the workshop are €300 and applications must be done by 12pm on Friday 26thJuly
