The successful event delivered the knowledge in story-telling process and how it can be applied in the wide creative field whether as an animator, designer, artist, writer, or director and so on.

Students analyzed films, storylines & actors’ acting skills while Saisselin shared camera angles walkthroughs & how-to’s on character performance. Students also expanded their knowledge in characterization by Gawryn when she conducted a physical exercise session where students are required to move & sense their limbs, joints and muscles. This would enable them to create an influential and believable character, especially in animation.
