Animatika’s course certainly has a great value: that of completeness.

Starting from theoretical and practical theories of plastic anatomy, design and sculpture, providing a traditional art base, offers the student the opportunity to deal with digital organic modeling and then develop an understanding of shape, structure and in detail of the 3D model.

The course also provides students with the skills to use particle systems and dynamics included in 3D software, useful for generating contributions to be used in compositing.

The study of movement and the ability to manage the animation curves, together with the analysis and observation of moving things, allow instead to learn the basic tools of character animation.
