“ It was such an amazing and rewarding experience for me to be able to follow this Advanced Animation Class in body mechanic on a gorilla with Laurent. The purpose of this exercice was about to study in detail the anatomy of an ape and to re-imagine and understand the complexity of a reference with missing part. Laurent was really dedicated to share all his knowledge and his understanding of the creature locomotion. I learned a lot and I definitely recommend this class to anyone who wants to step forward on a strong fondation process of building a solid creature Keyframe animation. Thanks so much Laurent!”
