An FYI for any aspiring animators who happen to speak some French…
A free course that covers the basics of computer animation has just gotten underway. Called Anima Podi, the free course is offered by the Gobelins, L’École de L’Image, the famed Parisian school of visual arts.
According to Cartoon Brew, the “MOOC [Massive Open Online Course] is aimed at first-time or self-taught animators. The first week of the course will be dedicated to introductory preparation, while each subsequent week will focus on a new animation exercise.” “Anima Podi will also dedicate a significant amount of time to animation history … and delve into styles and traditions from around the world ‘so that people understand what is animation beyond Disney.'” Animation exercises will be completed with a software called Rumba.
The free course (register here) is currently offered in French, but an English version will appear down the road.
