Character Animation for Games. 2D Animation Teaching Reel with Uppsala University, Sweden

A 2D Character Animation course taught under the Department of Game Design with Uppsala University from Sweden, 2020/21. The teaching software was Adobe Animate however, students were allowed to choose any preferred software.

I taught this course by myself entirely via Zoom (due to the Pandemic) and all this material was created in approx 10 teaching weeks, 6h/week class time.

The prerequisite of this course is the Introduction to Animation Principles also a class taken with me.

This course was build up in several modules focused on motion, locomotion, and intro to acting.
(1) Basic character setup and loop animations (non-human characters).
(2) Humanoid character setup, body mechanics, and acting animation.
