FOUNDATIONS I

During this module you'll begin to develop the fundamental skills that you'll apply to all of your future animation. Each step is imperative to development. The content is layered for advancement so make sure you focus on each individual stage. This module is the most tedious, bouncing balls and animating pendulums just isn't as much fun as breathing life into an advanced character model. But the skills with which to do that are developed here and the more you focus at this stage the further advanced you'll be when the time comes.
