In today’s world where rendering is becoming less of a hurdle, with simplificationand accessibility of many render engines and hardware, it is important to acknowledge that in order to stand out, one must possess abilities that go further than making images look beautiful or realistic on a technical level alone. In the two day workshop, we will focus on the preproduction and creative aspect behind animation and filmmaking. Sava Zivkovic Behance www.behance.net/SavaZivkovic
