Character Animation is HARD!

If you've ever tried to animate a character in After Effects, you know that the results aren't always what you would expect. Walks look like they're sliding, jumps that feel more like floating in space, movements feel too mechanical, it can be a nightmare. If this describes your experience with character animation, this course has you covered. By the end of Character Animation Bootcamp, you'll know how to create charming character animations that look good and feel right.
