Architectural Animations

With captivating ambience

Animations are gaining momentum in a variety of industries. It is no wonder, as the medium engages the viewer and shows nuanced and even abstract details that stills can not capture. Since architectural concepts and client expectations become more complex too, archviz professionals increasingly receive commissions that involve animation creation.

If you want to keep up with the demands of the industry and advance your career, you should master this powerful tool. Through this course, you will learn the practicalities needed to craft animations with compelling atmospheres. On top of that, you will become competent in client communication, teamwork and time management. Upon completing the course, you will be prepared to communicate a sense of place more effectively and wrap up animation projects with a profit.

Program

During eight-day-long course, you will learn all the fundamental aspects of architectural visualization movie making; from finding the right source of inspiration to editing, post-production and beyond. This is for you, if you have intermediate 3ds Max skills and basic movie editing knowledge.
