Summer Camps: Game Jam! Animation for Video Game Design

Jul 24, 2023
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
934 SW Salmon St., Portland, OR
Wheelchair accessible restrooms

Instructor: Ian Levesque

Experience the unique process of developing a game in a collaborative week-long camp. Campers will work as a part of a team for 5 days to create characters, assets, and plans for a first-person, interactive game that uses the core principles of animation in its creation. Each day, campers will learn about the different animation techniques used in video games and how they can create their own animations using industry-standard software. They will learn the basics of character and object rigging, keyframe animation, motion capture, and more. Campers will leave with a build of the game and a perspective on indie game development.
