2016 Animation Demo & Lecture Masterclass with Pixar Animator, Michal Makarewicz


Whether you're a student of animation or an experienced professional looking to add some polish and finesse to your animation workflow, there is no better way to piggyback on your skills than by attending a course geared specifically towards your field. Throughout 2016, the Animation Collaborative is taking their personalized animation education experience on the road — possibly to a city near you (read on).

The 2-day Animation Demonstration and Lecture Masterclass was crafted to provide an in-depth look at the workflow (through presentation and demonstration) of Pixar animator, Michal Makarewicz. We can tell you from personal experience chatting with Michal on several occasions (including on our podcast), that his style is extremely engaging and you can completely feel his passion for not only animation, but also educating people about the art form of animation. 


As the Directing Animator on Pixar's upcoming, Finding Dory, Michal has a unique ability to handle massive technical challenges with many moving parts (like animating each brick of LEGO Bunny's insanely-fast transitions in Toy Story of TERROR!) while still allowing subtle nuances to come through in his work (like his fantastic animation when Anton Ego first tastes Remy's ratatouille dish...think of the subtleties in Ego's eyes and face as he is transported back in time after tasting the food). Watch samples of Michal's animation in the demo reel below.
