about the course

What will you learn?

Acting for Visual Storytellers takes a detailed look at how every choice an artist makes is an opportunity to tell a story. Whether working in story, layout, or animation, it’s helpful for every artist to understand the vocabulary and skills used by actors for preparation, script analysis, character development, and more. 

Students will examine film and television clips and learn a variety of simple, effective, and immediately usable acting tools and techniques. Taught in a fun and safe atmosphere, this class also gives students the chance to experiment with performing and shooting their own reference with feedback from the instructor. No acting experience is necessary, and scenes will be provided.

By the end of the course, students will be able to use small tools and concepts that can be used as building blocks for larger ideas and visions. The goal is to get the students to think procedurally, embrace the core concepts of Houdini, and broaden your toolset to drive you into new creative areas.
