Hybrid 2D and 3D Animation in Blender Masterclass

April 4, 2020 @ 13:30 - 16:30

In this special masterclass, Instagram up-and-comer Dedouze will demonstrate advanced animation techniques in Blender that mix 2D and 3D approaches. Dedouze will guide participants through the development pipeline: from the initial storyboard, to creating and compositing animated 2D and 3D objects in the same scene, and finishing with special effects, camera adjustments, final editing and rendering. 2D animation will be tackled with Blenders sophisticated Greasepencil tool. This masterclass is for artists and designers working in diverse fields involving motion graphics, including: animation, illustration, concept art, web development, advertising, etc.
Participants must bring a personal laptop with Blender pre-installed, a graphics tablet and a computer mouse. The school can provide a large Wacom tablet for the duration of the workshop but participants should bring your own if possible. Blender is a free, open-source 3D graphics and animation tool that can be downloaded here: https://www.blender.org/download/


Dedouze is a self-taught illustrator and animator based in Paris. He learned to draw with traditional mediums and in CGI during his free spare time, while he worked as a web developer. Dedouze switched to a full-time freelance career as an illustrator in 2018. He has worked on storyboards and 2D/3D animation for French TV series, music videos and French feature films. He discovered Blender’s potential while working on a fully animated opening scene for a TV series, using the new Greasepencil tool in the beta version of Blender 2.8. Dedouze is passionate about developing personal art and innovative techniques as well as making a living from his creations.
