Masterclass: Becoming a Story Artist – Cinzia Angelini, Director, Cinesite Feature Animation

There’s a lot more to making an animated film than one would imagine. Once the script has been written, and the ideas have been outlined, it’s up to story artists, directors, producers and many other individuals to help with the development and evolution of a film. What is the role of a story artist, and what does it take to bring a script to life? Cinzia Angelini, an artist who worked her way up from animator and story artist to finally become a director, will present, or “pitch” storyboards from films like Minions, Despicable Me 3, The Grinch and Abominable. Watch the magic unfold as she shares some of the secrets behind storytelling in the movie industry.”

Process Deconstructed – Sava Zivkovic, Director & CG Artist

In this masterclass I break down my process with two projects, my personal short film FREIGHT, and the Outriders trailer I’ve directed at Axis Studios. We’ll go into detail regarding every step of production, from writing, storyboarding, previz, modeling, animation, rendering and post, all the way to the importance of sound and music and how I work with composers. With Outriders I’ll discuss the pre production and the pitching process at a large studio, and hopefully shed some light on this less discussed but incredibly important part of the process. We’ll also touch base on some of the new technologies that have become available to freelancers and small teams, and how they can influence the already established process of bigger studios.

Mastering Low And High Poly Hard Surface Modeling in ZBrush – Jonathan McFall, Programme Leader VFX, Escape Studios

This webinar will be a Masterclass in using hard surface modelling techniques in Zbrush. Hard surface modelling is about creating nice sharp edges, which is very different to traditional sculpting in Zbrush. Hard surfaces can be created at the low poly stage or at high poly and we will look at both. I will start off with the basics of low and high poly hard surface modelling and will finish by looking at the most interesting features available.

We will span everything from sweeping global changes that impact the menus and the world, all the way to the smallest character details that make a big difference. From launch day to today, discover how improvements were squeezed out of the game engine using virtually nothing but art. Lace up and come along for the year+ long trek of getting from A to B.
