Bit late to the game. The kickstarter got cancelled in January! :(
Kickstarter failed and it got cancelled?
will the course contain timelapses?
Pixar has recently made a number of courses available on the Khan Academy website for you to start your own animation journey. The best thing here is that the courses are free.
A set called “Pixar in a Box” features short lessons on character modeling, animation, using virtual cameras and other important aspects.
Pixar also has a free course on the art of storytelling:
What makes someone a good storyteller? Storytelling is something we all do naturally, starting at a young age, but there’s a difference between good storytelling and great storytelling. In this lesson you’ll hear from Pixar directors and story artists about how they got their start, what stories inspire them, and you’ll begin to think about what kinds of stories you might want to tell.
Pixar in a Box
Learn to build your own stories and get advice from Pixar storytellers on how to create your tales. The free courses consist of text and short videos with no skill level requirements. Pixar in a Box will not give you a thorough explanation of all the aspects, but the courses will definitely be a perfect start.
