  • A basic knowledge of filmmaking and animation lingo.

In this step by step course I will cover all the steps it takes to make an animated short.

I will go over the process of coming up with a story idea, writing the script in the correct format, creating a storyboard and making an animatic out of it, creating a previz, modeling, rigging, lighting, rendering and even how to animate (I animate an entire shot in one of the videos). I also show my editing process and how I do color correction, compositing and even sound design for the final product.

This course is made out of video tutorials, each covering an individual step of the making process.

Who is the target audience?
  • Animators (or aspiring animators) filmmakers and creative people who wants to make an animated short (or in the process of making one).

I'm Morr, a NYC based animator/filmmaker. After graduating from the School of Visual Arts (majoring in 3D animation), I started my career as a character animator, freelancing in various studios around town.

Despite loving what I do, I felt like it's not enough to work for other people, and that I HAVE to keep doing my own thing. What started as a YouTube tutorial channel has quickly evolved into the Bloop Animation blog, a platform on which I can share my work with a great audience of animators and creative artists.

On the site, I documented my journey of making LIFT UP (my second animated short) and shared many video tutorials about every step of the making process.

I truly hope that sharing my journey will inspire people to follow their passion. Thanks for visiting and see you around!
