Blender is a popular free and open source 3D modelling program used by professionals and amateurs for 2D/3D animation, making assets for games, video editing, motion graphics, compositing and more.
This online workshop, led by Antonio Roberts, will introduce you to the software and its features. In this workshop you will learn basic concepts of animation and navigating 3D space, eventually progressing to more advanced concepts and techniques. By the end you will have the skills to create abstract and glitchy looping animations.
If you’ve ever been interested in creating in 3D, this workshop is the perfect introduction!
