Bucks Animation - Maya "Taster Day"

Autodesk Maya
We just finished our animation "taster day" here at Bucks - showing students the basics of Autodesk Maya, the leading software now being used in the animation, games and VFX industries.

I was delighted by the excellent turnout and the quality of the candidates - all of whom I have already met during the interview process here at Bucks. It was a pleasure to meet such enthusiastic students and help them to get started on their professional journey as animators and digital artists.

Maya is very deep software and the learning curve - especially at the  beginning - is steep. But everyone was patient and managed in just 3 hours to get some great animation going - no small achievement given that the tools are complex and take time to master.

The morning got me excited about starting formal teaching in September - and looking forward to meeting everyone in our new cohort.
