Online Workshop – Blender Animations with Antonio Roberts

25 July 2020 @ 13:00 - 16:00


Blender is a popular free and open source 3D modelling program used by professionals and amateurs for 2D/3D animation, making assets for
games, video editing, motion graphics, compositing and more.

This online workshop, led by Antonio Roberts, will introduce you to
the software and its features. In this workshop you will learn basic
concepts of animation and navigating 3D space, eventually progressing
to more advanced concepts and techniques. By the end you will have the
skills to create abstract and glitchy looping animations.

If you’ve ever been interested in creating in 3D, this workshop is the
perfect introduction!
