3. Facial Performance
Students tackle the demanding task of facial acting in more detail. Students learn to animate a line of dialogue with the main focus of the shot being the subtle emotional beats in the face. In Facial Performance students dig into the nuances of facial animation that will help you to understand how and why to build stronger facial poses. Explore how the face works as a whole unit and shape, and how the small pieces play a role in delivering subtle changes in the character's thoughts. Instructors dive deeper into facial acting, and demonstrate how strong facial acting infuses depth and personality into your characters.
