99 Minutes Of Your Time…


…Muvizu Animation School.

If you enjoy 3D animated films, have you ever thought about making your own? If the answer is yes, you've probably dismissed the idea because learning completely new skill sets in what are necessarily extremely technical realms has, until now, been an almost insurmountable barrier to entry.

But how about a program that played to your experience in film or stage? One that allowed you to concentrate on traditional skills, on directing performances from your characters rather than have to animate frame by frame. What if your actors lip-synched to dialogue tracks automatically.

What if you could approach your animation from start to finish via an interface that was largely a metaphor for real-life film production; yes, your own sound stage, but with lighting and effects to die for.

What if you could produce an animated short in a couple of hours, not months, relying on skills you've already mastered.

You should try Muvizu. Come along and we'll show you how.

The Muvizu Animation School will feature a short that changes the way we think about animation: Ghost House.

With a resolution high enough to display at a cinema, this pilot episode is a piece of 3D animation that would typically take a highly skilled team a few months to create. Except Ghost House was made on a laptop in just a couple of weeks.

Using groundbreaking technology from the games industry reconfigured for filmmakers, Muvizu software allows filmmakers to direct rather than animate their projects. Now anyone with a decent computer can make and publish animated shorts quickly and without specialist training. Welcome to the future, only at Raindance.

The 99 Minute Muvizu Animation School will be followed by a panel discussion: "The Future of Animation"
