Topic of MASTERCLASS is focused on PERFORMANCE in Animation:
Aiming to have strong choices in Acting

  • From cartoony to realistic: Dissection and understanding of style
  • Biomechanics: Basics of mechanics and locomotion, weight, and introduction to anatomy for performance.
  • Acting: Building your knowledge and study of actors, performances and real life observations. What to throw away and what to use, what to look for in good acting.
  • Putting it all together: The importance of choice over skill, where to break the rules and where to play them to your favour.


Developing stylised characters for animation is not as easy as one might think, and infusing those characters with long-lasting appeal is even harder. Join us with Ravi Kamble, Lead / Supervising Animator on Feature Films, on how he developed his expertise in stylizing characters through his own unique way.


Hear from him the approach he took while developing Dave – the Octopus (one of the most challenging characters of CGI Animation) while working on Penguins of Madagascar and his experiences on working on How To Train Your Dragon 3.


Ravi will also be doing a live-demo session, where he will take a shot from start to finish in Autodesk Maya.
