Skilled video game animators wield a unique blend of art, design and technical prowess. The Animation Bootcamp is at the forefront of sharing relevant knowledge, bringing together experienced and specialized animation experts across AAA and Indie for deep-dive discussions into the needs of strong character performances and player communication.

This tutorial will go through all facets of animation expertise: 'traditional' focused talks on animation process, 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 creates the need for not just great animators, but great developers.
