Intensive Course 5



The primary aim of the Intensive Course “Introduction to Maya Modeling and Animation” is to make every participant familiar with the two main concepts of digital design including working with Nurbs and Polygon geometry in Maya. Advance animation techniques will be included as tools for the design process in order to achieve new aesthetics, as well as allowing an extended representation of the design process. For visualization we will introduce Keyshot as the perfect tool that allows the participants to easily and effectively create stunning images of their work and therefor prepare them for industry standards and beyond. The intensive course “intro to Maya Modeling and Animation” is included in the DYNAMIC MUTATIONS V2.0 workshop but can be taken separately if desired.

Each participant should provide their own computer with the following softwares installed. If a you do not have a software, trail versions can be found on each software companies website. For attending the workshop and intensive course there is no previous software experience required.

  • Autodesk Maya
  • Keyshot
  • Adobe suite

DYNAMIC MUTATIONS V2.0 workshop will expand from January 29 to February 6, 2016 with the intensive course taking place the the first two days, January 29 to 30, 2016. The workshop will take place daily from 10:00 to 18:00h at ZEZEZE Architecture Gallery, Hangar 21 Tel Aviv Port.
