  • Why i created this course ?

 there are Tons of valuable information that i learned during my Workdays that i want to share with you. 

  • What inspired me to create this course ?

As i was starting to learn this i was very amazed by the animation movies and i always wanted to learn how its done.I kept on searching online and in Training centers to find something that teaches architectural animation but i couldn't find something that satisfies me .Then i had the opportunity to work for a small animation company. I left my job as an architect and took the job at that small animation company.Working in a small company actually gave me a huge advantage to learn more. Part of my job was to hold meetings with the clients, To make storyboards myself , do the modeling the rendering and even the montage and final retouches.

  • How can this course help Me?

The information you are about to learn are Real valuable ones ,For every phase of work there are these small tricks that can save you massive amount of time,effort and money.

and my job is to point that out and give you my best solutions.i am also working on the bigger picture of organizing your work and deals with clients. 

  • Is it difficult to learn and do 3D architectural animation?

It is not easy .. but here is the surprise: 

  1. i broke down the process into simple steps that you can apply to any architectural project
  2. to make it even easier i split them into 3 courses and this is phaze 1.
  3. i use special techniques in teaching so it wont be boring (like speeding up videos if i am doing repetitive work or rendering ...etc 

  • What is phaze 1 is about ?

Phaze 1 : is about PLANING your work .

  • Making the deal.
  • Storyboard designing.
  • Sketching cameras.
  • Basics of movements in max.
  • Professional camera movements .
  • and producing previews.

it seems like an easy phase yet it is the most important of all.

 if you have everything planned out and held correctly you will be making great animation movies.

i hope you enjoy this learning experience with me.
