Got everything I wanted...and a lot more! | Hands-on exercises were awesome! | Loved the interaction with fellow-producers! | I was a novice...now I'm using Vyond proficiently! | Amazing facilitation and demos!

“Before the Vyond Story Production Workshop, my stories felt robotic. I learned how to bring my characters to life!"
Cory Wolfe
Sr Communications Specialist
"Story production was taking me so long. Now I have techniques that have streamlined my process for making great animated videos!"
Arleen Lafuente
Learning & Training Specialist
“I was a complete novice. To my surprise, in a matter of days, I created 3 quality videos that I could immediately use in a course I was developing."
Carla Serrano
Elearning Specialist
"I had a long list of challenges: camera movement, smooth transitions, sound, voice-over. I'm not new to Vyond, but I learned so much. Even if you think you're an expert, take this workshop!"
Shazia Mirza
"Gave me the inspiration to change from telling to sharing a story with my trainings. Learned how to use features in Vyond that I did not know existed or how to use, like masking."
Kelley Ribaudo
Instructional Designer
"I needed guidance on how to get started and where to focus my energies pre/mid/post development. I learned so many time saving features and functionalities. The worksheets and templates will keep me on point for all my video projects going forward."
Sheryl Isaacs
Director, Process, Systems, and Training


 Hands-on production
Do you already own a license for Vyond? If not, download the 14-day trial version just before the workshop. You'll be producing a full story and learning the most important features that will make your animated video sing!
 Video story-making
You'll practice creating relatable characters for a specific audience and use a storyboard to create scenes full of great conflict! 
 Share your work
And learn from the work of others in the workshop. The school makes it possible to have conversations with other attendees inside and outside the sessions.


Session 1

Meet the audience for your story and create relatable characters. Work on scene building: background, set pieces, props, perspective and proportioning. Make your characters move, act and talk, guided by the storyboard. Bring focus with camera movement. 


Set aside a few hours to finish building out the story according to the storyboard. Share your work with the group right here on the school site. Get valuable feedback on your video's strengths and where it can be improved. 

Session 2

Hone those production techniques! We'll also have time to answer lingering questions and make sure you're ready to tackle your next project!
