PIXAR Animator Michal Makarewicz Lecture Series

Postby Latienie » Tue Dec 10, 2013 11:12 am

Hey y'all, My name is Lana and I just joined Animation Nation. Glad to be here.

In recent years I've had the pleasure of hosting a series of lectures with professionals from in and around the Bay Area (i.e. Pixar, ILM, Lucas, Tippett, Dreamworks, etc..) all whilst taking comprehensive notes to share with the Animators of the interwebs. I thought a community like this might enjoy some of the tips and tricks offered by the pros!

Here's some links to a 3-part series we did with PIXAR Animator Michal Makarewicz. Check it out and let me know what you think!
