What will you learn?

Basics

We’ll start off by covering our bases, going through all the different types of animation, as well as learn the vocabulary to make sure we're all on the same page.

The 12 Principles of Animation

After understanding the basics, we'll dig deep into the famous 12 Principles of Animation, established by old time Disney animators.

Animating a Scene

After understanding the theory and all the basic principles of animation, we'll dive into animating a whole scene from start to finish. We'll learn all the skills necessary, including how to shoot reference video, how to work in passes, how to work with cameras in your shots, and even learn some lip-syncing techniques and study walk cycles.

Super detailed, fast paced.

We hate long, dragged-out tutorials. We believe in bite-sized lessons with a clear structure that get straight to the point without skipping any important information. We’ll take you step-by-step through the program’s learning curve.

Animation training can get expensive.

Animation courses can be pricey, often in the thousands of dollars. These programs cover entire skill sets, including many topics you'll probably never use. Our courses are just the right size and very cost-effective, teaching exactly what you need to know to start animating right away.

From our students:

I’ve been obsessed with animation since a very young age, and always tried creating my own animations. I wanted to learn it properly and decided to get Animation Foundations. I’ve never been happier with a purchase. What I liked most about the course was the level of detail, mixed with excellent pacing of the lessons. Everything felt like a gradual curve and I was never bored, even going over them again and again.

Cathair Kerrigan, Animation student, Ireland

Bloop Animation provides a very simple-to-use learning platform, making all the content easily accessible. The option of downloading the video lessons makes it easy for me to carry the course with me wherever I go. I always have it on my iPad and it’s a constant reference.
