This workshop will introduce Toon Boom Harmony, an award-winning software used by the largest animation studios in the world. In four sessions, participants will explore the platform, from simple frame-by-frame drawing to creating animatable rigs, from fixed to moving camera, from painting to adding effects, and how to work with motion keyframes and pegs. Participants will leave with a basic facility for the software and a sense of its vast possibilities. Whether you’re a skilled artist or filmmaker, a novice, or already an animator, you are welcome to participate in the workshop to see what Harmony has to offer.
