The Magic of Walk Cycles
What is this course about?
Now, making a course on say a given software is one thing but making a course on something so artistic as walk cycles is a totally different beast. Good news though!
After months of work I’ve finally cracked the nut and made a course that is both logical and digestible and will leave no question marks as how to make your character bounce a long down the timeline.
So if you already have some basic knowledge of After Effects and Illustrator I’m inviting you to my animation magic classes.
Style is everything in animation. Well there’re also timing, acting, staging, antici…. Ok, so perhaps style is not everything in animation but a huge part of it nevertheless. When planning this course, I drew inspiration from the Golden Age of animation when such greats as Walt Disney and Max Fleischer laid the foundation for everything we’re doing here today. Yup, in this way, you can be sure that the knowledge you learn here will never go out of style.
Bring out another dimension in your walk cycles that will impress even the pickiest of viewers. How to do this? Well, the key word in this course is “smooth”. Yes, everyone likes watching a smooth walk cycle, it’s just a fact. Believe me cuz I just made it up. Fact or not, we all do like watching stuff that is perfected. So, don’t put your future characters in a choppy walk cycle, give them the Magic Walk Cycle treatment instead. Just make sure to turn off your Instagram notifications before you go to bed cuz your feed might go bananas after posting.

When I see that we already are doing a video game metaphor, I will take it one step further. This course is by no means the final boss. It’s more like that sword in the forest that you run around a whole game trying to find. Cuz you know that once you find it, you will be unstoppable. That’s why this course is for you. It’s a magical sword of animation knowledge. OK, now I just killed this metaphor, but you get it.

What do our students say?
You will study from animators and Motion Designers from around the globe. Each of them is a professional in their own field, seasoned in production studios, freelance projects with big brands and stock footages. And right, we are also sweet.
Yes, I found the courses extremely helpful and well put together. I was researching online tutorials for my colleagues who are just beginning to learn AE and was testing out a MDS course to see if I could recommend it. I ended up learning a lot myself :)
The Science of Character course was extremely helpful. It was easy to follow and the lessons were top notch. Your team produces high quality learning experiences that I haven’t found in other places when it comes to motion graphics. Keep up the great work!
I’ve watched some of the shorter classes and have loved them! The teaching style is fantastic and engaging 🙂 I’ve also enjoyed seeing everyone’s work in the FB groups. Everyone seems to be excited to give helpful feedback and encouragement! I recommend your classes to my coworkers and friends all the time (am a full time sr. designer).
Great classes and I'm happy that invested in them. I definitely learned a lot of new ways of working that made me faster and better at my job.
The lessons are great. You get what you're looking for and a little more.
I work for Accenture and animated videos are on a daily basis. Our clients loved the few effects that I was able to learn at the course. Also, I still go back to the lessons and find something new to learn.
