Rigging in Maya is Back on 7 Jan 2019

Michael Davies
We're delighted to welcome back 3D Artist and rigging specialist Michael Davies to teach a new evening class in rigging in Maya, starting Monday 7th January 2019.

Michael has worked on many VFX blockbusters such as Batman vs Superman, Doctor Strange and Thor Ragnarok.

He also rigged Smaug (The Hobbit) and The Minions for Illumination-McGuff.

Rigging with Michael Davies
You’ll learn all the basics of rigging in Autodesk Maya (a basic understanding of Maya will be helpful) and what character riggers do in the animation and VFX industry.

What's this course all about?
It's all about how characters and creatures get put together.  Rigging is the art and craft of taking a 3D model and making a skeleton structure that makes it work, so that animators can breathe life into it and create a performance.

Tutor: Michael Davies
Like all of our courses at Escape Studios, this course is designed, developed and delivered by industry professionals. Michael's main areas of expertise are rigging and modelling, but he has also worked as a 3D generalist and supervisor. He is also an Accredited Trainer for Maya at Autodesk.

This class will be held at Escape Studios central London campus at 190 High Holborn. 
Start date 
Autodesk Maya is our key software, and the industry leader
Monday 7th January 2019. Duration: eight weeks.

Mode of study
Part-time. Tuesday Evening: 7pm - 10pm
