Taster Days are a great chance to learn about character and creature animation, and find out what an animator's job is all about.
You will learn how to use Autodesk Maya and get a hands-on introduction to 3D Animation techniques; the full day costs just £25, and by the end of the day you'll have your own piece of creature animation - a bird in flight - uploaded to your YouTube channel. No prior knowledge of Maya - or any software - is required.
