About workshop

Would you like to animate your own character? Or simply learn how to  bring illustrations to life? This workshop with the popular YouTube channel Kurzgesagt will get you ready for the world of animated characters. You will learn the process of setting up your illustrated character, preparing assets for animation and then bringing the character to life using Adobe AE and Duik Bassel.
