Course Overview

About this Course:

The most common problem with amateur animations is that everything is covered from only one camera angle That is because they either don't know other options or because drawing the different angles of a character can be challenging.

One thing is certain:

Good cinematography pulls the audience into the story. The objective of having awesome shots in your animation is to MAKE THE AUDIENCE FEEL. How can you call yourself an artist if you're not making your audience feel? There are basic cinematography concepts ignored by many animators and that is because in animation the priority is to make a character come to life which is the foundation but once you have that you need to be able to communicate in another level a level that makes people happy if you want them to or sad or angry or scared. Good cinematography can make a dramatic scene even more dramatic or a strong character look even stronger or a weak character look weaker. You can help to create tension between two characters and also you can help the audience feel more attached to one character than the other.
