New Feature Workshop 3.5

He's Back! And With A New Workshop. Jamaal Bradley took some time off from teaching at iAnimate to pursue some unique career opportunities. During his hiatus he traveled to India where he was an Animation Supervisor on Penguins of Madagascar. He's currently enjoying working directly with James Baxter, Chris Sanders, & Kirk DeMicco as an Animation Supervisor on Croods 2. He's back with a new Feature workshop - Advanced Pantomime Acting. In this class your animated piece will be an exploration of making your character entertain, evoke emotion, and breath life without the use of dialogue. This is an essential skill in your journey as an animator and entertainer. "Together we will build an understanding of thoughts and actions that will drive our characters." - Jamaal
