 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!
