Focal Seminar:
Background Design
27 juillet 2020

Following the success of the Color Key (2017) and Character Design (2018) seminars, FOCAL offers a new event along the same practice and theory-based methodology.

The setting of an animation filmis a key element that underlines dramatic aspects. During this two-day seminar, we will investigate research and development methods specific to this area and explore how the story guides visual choices. Manufacturing techniques will be discussed briefly, but they will not be the focus of this workshop, which is mainly devoted to the process of artistic set creation.

This seminar will cover sets useable in animation films, but also video games and illustration.
