This episode is sponsored by Bloop Animation, which is an animation learning platform packed with premium online video courses for aspiring animation filmmakers.
They have courses for all major animation programs like Maya, Animate CC, Toon Boom, Blender, TVPaint, and many others, as well as some non-software courses like a storyboarding course, Animation foundations course, and even one about making graphic novels, which covers absolutely everything you need to know from start to finish.
The courses are all in video-form, so there’s no deadlines or application process, you simply pick a course and start learning in seconds.
In fact, they just released a brand new course teaching how to animate Moho. Moho, formerly known as Anime Studio, is a 2D animation software that's main selling point is its ability to easily build and animate with rigged puppet characters. It’s balance of ease of use and powerful features makes it a popular option for hobbyists, and while it’s not an industry standard yet, it has been used on some major productions such as the Oscar nominated feature films Song of the Sea, and The Breadwinner.
The course came out today, and it includes 38 video lessons with over 5 hours of content. Bloop always launches new courses at a discounted price for the first few days, so make sure to get it before Friday when the prices go up for good.
