I’ve been working with Maya for years. Both in the commercial world and for my own films. It is the industry standard for 3D animation, so if you’re planning on getting into the animation industry, this is the program to know.

Super detailed, fast paced.

We hate long, dragged-out tutorials.

I went through many tutorials which almost put me to sleep, going through a ton of stuff I didn’t need, or repeating the same stuff over and over.

Not our courses. 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.

Made for animators. Experienced or newbies.

Why waste your time on a generic Maya course?

As animators, we built this course from the ground up to be tailored to other animators, both professional and aspiring. A tailored suit is always going to fit better than the one you buy off the rack. And so will this course.

YouTube tutorials are great, but they can only take you so far.

I love looking for tutorials and articles online, and I’m sure you are too (that’s probably how you found us), but I never felt that it’s a good way to learn an entire program or a skill.

You might find the answer to a question you have, but what if you’re starting from scratch? What if you don’t wanna waste your time and start animating sooner rather than later?

Animation training can get expensive.

Most animation training courses, both online and on-campus, can get very pricey, often in the hundreds or thousands of dollars. Those courses usually cover the entire program, including many features 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.

What will you learn?


  • Connector.

    Interface

    We’ll start by going over the Maya interface and understand how to work with different layouts, scenes and how to select and manipulate objects.

  • Connector.

    Animation Basics

    We’ll go over different animation tools and methods, keyframing, interpolation types and even using the graph editor.

  • Connector.

    Setting Up for Animation

    After learning our way around Maya, we’ll create a new scene and import a rig. We’ll learn how to use that rig, as well as how to work with cameras.

  • Connector.

    Animating a Shot

    After our scene is ready for animation, we’ll sketch our poses with the grease pencil, block our shot and polish it until it’s ready for rendering.

  • Connector.

    Export a Finished Shot

    After finishing the animation we’ll learn some basic render methods to get a nice looking final render out of Maya, and then export it using After Effects to end up with a great looking shot, suited for a demo-reel.

From our students:


I would recommend Maya Animation to anyone who is just starting out, like I was. It inspired me to go further with animation as a career. This course helps understanding what you need to know to navigate around the program, even if you’re clueless about Maya. Basically – perfect for newcomers.

Esha Mehta, graphic artist / designer 

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.
