Character Design Boot Camp

Campers will learn how to design characters that can be used in animation and video games. Character design is one of the most compelling elements of animated features or video games. The Character Design workshop will focus on creating a creature based on each of the camper's own concepts. Students will learn what it takes to design characters professionally, and they will get a glimpse of what it is like to study animation and game design in college. The camp will last for 5 days.

Students will learn the following:

  1. Character Illustration
  2. Character Turnarounds
  3. Coloring Character Turnaround
  4. Sculpture Tools and Techniques
  5. Other Techniques

The camp will last from 9 am to 4:30 pm each day, with the only exception being the last day, when the camp will run from 9 am to 2 pm. Campers will need to bring a notebook and a writing implement with them to class. Students will also need to bring a 16–32 gigabyte flash drive and/or a portable hard drive to camp.
