Skilled video game animators wield a unique blend of art, design and technical prowess to get the job done, and the Animation Bootcamp is at the forefront of sharing the relevant knowledge with developers everywhere. Back for a seventh year, this tutorial brings together a group of experienced and specialized animation experts across AAA and Indie. The Animation Bootcamp rallies developers from all over the industry to focus on deep-dive discussions into the needs of strong character performances and player communication. The day will go through all facets of animation expertise: 'traditional' focused talks on animation process, but also technical achievements, bite-sized tips and tricks, insight into animation culture, and how to best apply all that knowledge to game development. Through a variety of tools and disciplines, the day will show how the unique demands of game creation is creating the need for not just great animators, but great developers.
