Intro Film "Spring" by the Blender Animation Studio

Learn how to handle your Blender camera like a pro

There's a lot - a lot lot - that goes into creating a film. 

Lucky for you, Wayne takes the guesswork out of camera movement and delivers all the do's and don'ts in his new course.

  • field of view
  • the types of camera lenses
  • apertures
  • depth of field and focus
  • framing (important!)
  • and different camera rigs
  • types of camera shots - as well as angles
  • and, of course, the different camera moves

Wayne illustrates this with hands-on examples. 

There are also a few different special camera moves we'll cover, like camera shake and handheld camera.

The course comes with graded exercises, so you can put your new skills to the test.
