Introduction to Animated Storytelling

Real-time filmmaking​ is increasingly becoming one of the most in-demand skills in film and animation. This b​rand-new​ workshop is designed to instruct learners looking to harness Unity for cinematic sequences such as trailers, cut-scenes, short films, and more. This workshop covers eight topics, including the below: 

●  Project setup:​ configuration, shortcuts, best practices, and basic Unity Editor familiarity for film and animation 

●  Layout and scene-building:​ tips for blocking and setting up early staging of action in a 3D environment, including lighting, cameras, and sequencing 

●  Lighting:​ overview and tips for maximizing artistic storytelling using Unity’s Post-Processing Stack 

●  Cameras and shot-building:​ harnessing tools like Cinemachine and Timeline for professional, intuitive camera work 

●  Final frame: u​ sing the Unity Recorder and exporting to various formats to suit your needs 

Each area focuses on a specific set of activities around each topic and empowers learners with hands-on project work. By the end of this workshop, participants will understand how to get started with Unity for animated storytelling.
