Animator and educator Richard Arroyo (Thor, Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia) will examine the creative process and best practices for “thinking” about animation while you create it. Using unique animation clips, methods and demonstrations, he’ll guide us through various theories and processes for leaving a lasting impression on the audience. He’ll reveal methods for animators for achieving their visual language goals, and enhancing their scenes in games, films and commercials. Richard will also discuss effective techniques for animators for improving workflow and becoming more efficient at their craft. Richard will provide a well-informed understanding of how story and performance are used to guide and connect with audiences.
