19.10.22 | Toon Boom Harmony for Beginners : Online

Starts Wednesday 19th October 2022 for 8 weeks. Toon Boon Harmony software will be provided for all participants.

A unique, part-time evening course taking you through the core concepts of animating and building characters in Toon Boom Harmony. If you’re new to the software then often a tutor-led course is one of the best ways to keep yourself accountable and gradually build the skills you’ll need to work in the animation industry. You will be part of a small group of like-minded participants who will learn together and have the chance to chat about your progress and other course related topics in a private group. This is also a great motivator!

Each week we’ll meet live and online to go through some new concepts and ask questions. Then you’ll have a week to practice on a short task, with every participant eligible for individual, professional feedback and review.

All participants will have access to Toon Boon Harmony for the duration of the course. Classes will be recorded and available for catch up anytime during the week, as well as course materials and resources on a special section of the Adam’s Animation Academy website.

Is this course right for me?

This course is aimed at beginners, so no prior knowledge of Toon Boom Harmony is required. It is also suitable for those who’d like to transfer their skills from other animation software or traditional methods.

What will the course cover?

During the 8 weeks we’ll broadly go over the following topics:

  • Key drawing tools
  • Traditional animation
  • Cut-out animation
  • Building characters
  • Exporting your animation

What can I expect to achieve by the end of the course?

By the end of the course you can expect to have created a character of your own and animated a short scene, as well as a fully rendered movie with background and sound! All participants who complete the full course will also be awarded a unique certificate.
