This course will give an introduction to Toonboom Harmony and a more in depth approach to rigging a character using different techniques. The course will cover:
• Using the basic drawing tools.
• Rigging a character using pegs, bones and deformations.
• Developing an understanding of the Network which controls character rigs.
• Setting up and animating various scenes designed to test and explore the challenges and capabilities of Toonboom Harmony.
This course is aimed at individuals working or training to work in the animation industry who wish to gain an understanding of the programme Toonboom Harmony. The course represents an ideal opportunity for intermediate/experienced animators to upskill, learn software which is becoming increasingly vital to the industry and to increase job opportunities. The course is also open to animation students though It should be noted the emphasis will be on learning to use the software for animation and not the teaching of basic animation principles.

He has worked on shows for Disney, BBC, Cartoon Network, RTE and TG4 with shows like Inis Spree, Danger Mouse and most recently Wander Over Yonder which he is currently working on with one of Ireland’s largest animation companies, Boulder Media. Alan has an extensive understanding of Toonboom which he has gained through years of practice and official training from Toonboom themselves.
