Animations become real, emotive and totally engaging when you learn the core "life" concepts so elegantly explained in this 22-tutorial course by Siobhan Twomey. And when you incorporate these real-world, physical properties like time, space, inertia and mass, into your projects they will absolutely enhance the verisimilitude (likeness to the truth) of any kind of animation you work on.

Using simple line drawings, Siobhan demonstrates these concepts, one by one, explaining their underlying theory. Then you will see how to draw, move and arrange objects depending upon their size, weight and other physical properties. When you complete this course, you will have a solid foundation in these core concepts enabling you to apply them, as you see fit, to your animation projects.

Whether you're creating 2D, 3D, stop-action or motion graphics, this course gives you the tools and inspiration to infuse life into any kind of animated object, no matter how they're created... and that's what it's all about, right?

So join the talented Siobhan Twomey in this first course in her Animation Concepts series and learn how to bring your objects to life!
