Mini-Makers class Only.
So you want to work in the Movies? No? That's OK too ...just making your cool creations is cool.
Remember when you played with Playdoh or Plasticine - how easy it was to create cool shapes and creatures, well that's exactly how Gollum and the other creatures you see on screen we're made... the difference is as well as making them in clay, the Weta artists also used tools like Sculptris and it's big sister Z-Brush to 'virtually' make, texture and paint stuff. Have you seen the little figures at the Games Workshop for role play?...we can make them in any shape you want - all you need is your imagination and we'll show you how!
Still keen? Well The Wellington Makerspace has a resident artist called Maddie and she is probably the worlds best at Z-brush and has done heaps of books and DVD's on making monsters and aliens and is currently working making movie stuff at Weta Digital....Maddie wants to share skills and knowledge with you guys - how cool is that?
This 2 hour introductory workshop will show the basics to get going on your new adventure with virtual modelling and you can even use it to create things for including in Games, movies and if you want one on your desk - we can even 3D print it!*
*Mmmmm chocolate monsters. But that won't be on this workshop - we just don't have the time.
However - the best bit is we'll be using FREE open source software so you will be able to download and carry on learning at home :) You never know...you might one day be making movies or top games too as a career!
