Emanuele Colombo/Antimatter – The illusion of life

Character animation in AfterEffects

When a motion designer faces the challenge of a character, he immediately discovers that it is much more complex than it may seem. Dozens of interconnected levels must move together and must do it harmoniously. During this workshop Emanuele will show the technique he uses to bring his characters to life, starting from the basic rules of animation (squash and stretch, overlapping and follow through), to how to easily reproduce them with After Effects by applying them to the movements of each single part of the character’s body. The workshop is dedicated to professional motion designers.

The workshop will be in Italian.
