VanArts is excited to bring our masterclass back to London. You won’t want to miss this chance to learn about animation and storytelling hands-on from Pixar’s top talent!
Learn from Ronnie del Carmen, Co-Director/Co-Writer of Disney/Pixar's Inside Out, and Andrew Gordon, Directing Animator on Pixar's Monsters University.
Our masterclasses have toured the world since 2008 to rave reviews. For more information about other cities we are visiting, check out our 2015 Fall Tour page.
This day will give an overview of a film’s life cycle and uncovering the storyteller within, steps to shaping a story, how to tell a relatable life story, understanding the importance of cinematic language, and a chance to share your finished story.
This day will focus on the animation techniques used in modern animated feature films. Shot progressions, multiple examples, and general best practices for how this work was accomplished will be talked about in this series of interactive lectures.
