We invite you to unique online training in creating computer animation for children and teenagers, organized by the Action Heroes Animation Studio. The author of the training is Paweł Lipka, who worked, among others with the animated series: „Garfield Show” and „Włatcy Móch”, as well as the cinema „Room of Suicides”. The trainings are intended for children between 11-15 years of age.
Children who are most often passive recipients of animated films and avid computer players can now try their hand at creating them. They learn about work tools that can not only encourage further development in this field, but also be useful in the future in the performance of many other professions.
Advertising content in the form of video or animation is becoming the dominant way of advertising on the Internet, and the ability to create them are increasingly valuable. In addition, the knowledge acquired during the training can inspire children and young people to develop in artistic or technical fields, because computer animation is a field in which every mind will find something for themselves.
Organized trainings also touch upon another interesting problem – future professional career. The advantage of computer animation is the ability to work online, performed from anywhere in the world. The time devoted to training is therefore an investment in the professional future. And online training prepares you for this type of work right away.
Paweł Lipka says about his training: „… many people are concerned that artistic skills are needed to learn animation. This is not true, but I will point out that people incorrectly assess these abilities. According to them, those who can draw or paint a nice picture have them. Although painting is an art, you must have trained workshop skills to practice it. Unless we remain at the stage of sensitivity of primitive people. It is only after some time of learning that you can assess whether someone has great talent and extraordinary abilities. But even if he did not have them, and would have openness, commitment and willingness to learn, he would quickly reach a level good enough to successfully find an interesting job. However, this is a small digression, because as I emphasize to learn animation, such abilities are not needed.
Considering the fact that animation is a field so extensive that some choose the path of development that suits mathematicians and physicists more, while others carefree and creative artists. By learning it, we are closer to choosing in accordance with our nature, than confirming the belief that this is a field completely not for us. At the training he also transmits a lot of „general development” knowledge. It could be compared to acrobatics, only at the mental level. Will acrobatics be useful in life, even if we do not earn directly on it? We will look better on the beach, perform all sports more efficiently, remain in better health and confidence. Similarly is with the mental acrobatics he offers at computer animation training. „
Here is a sample of the implementation of the animated training organizer – Action Heroes animation studios:
We encourage all parents to familiarize themselves with the youtube channel before making the decision to enroll their children on the training, where the trainer raises topics related to both animation training and matters universally relevant to the child’s development and education. Children need not only knowledge, but also mentors who will facilitate their next career steps.
The trainings consist of eight 2-hour online meetings where children learn advanced computer animation, including creating character objects and scenography, lighting, materials, special effects, character animation, rendering and post-production. Participation in the training costs PLN 80 for each of the eight meetings. Classes are run regularly and usually it takes about 3 weeks to start from the moment of registration. The days and times of meetings are set in consultation with the parents to match the time possibilities of the children. And if one or more classes from the cycle are skipped, it is possible to do them later.
To participate in classes you need an average computer and headphones with a microphone. Classes are held on free 3d animation software: https://www.blender.org/ Participants at the start of the entire cycle of classes receive a link to online training, which they enter once a week on pre-determined dates. During the training, they see and hear the lecturer and see his computer’s desktop. They can participate in communication in both voice and text, as well as depending on your preferences turn on the image from a video camera. They can also show their computers’ desktops, which allows them to solve technical problems on an ongoing basis and streamlines the learning process.
