I was a bit busy since a few day ago because I registered myself to a two month animation course at Darul Digital Sdn Bhd. Anime? Yes, animation. The fee is RM1500 but for Kelantanese, you will be sponsored by the state government. What you have to pay is only RM100, that is the registration fee and no need to pay the balance, RM1400. For non Kelantanese, you have to pay more. RM2500.
This is a good course. I know I am not that good in arts. Especially in drawing. It is so bad. So I asked myself, why don’t give a try? Let’s do it. If I am not interested, I can stop at anytime. So, I enter the class because it is sponsored by the state government and to fill in my free time, and I want to know how a caricature in the television moves. What make it moving. That is. Not an enough reason ya? I feel so stupid in that class. Before this I only play with number, then change to anime and drawing. I am not serious and I found a reason to stop myself from being stupid in that animation class. The reason is, I got a job. Yes, I got a job.
Ok, let me tell you a little bit about this course. At Darul Digital, you will be teach about 2D animation, 3D animation and make a short film. 2D animation is not that easy for me because we have to draw a caricature then upload it to the computer. I have a problem to draw it on a paper. You will use Lightwave software and some other tools. Example of 2D animation are Usop Sontorian, Keluang Man, and so on and so forth. Then, you have to prepare a short 2D animation video as your final project, either in a group or individual.
3D animation is 100% using computer. So if you don’t know how to draw a cartoon on a paper, nothing to worried. I should have no problem in this class. And at the end, you have to prepare a short 3D animation video as a project, maybe an individual project or group project. Example of 3D animation is our famous local cartoon, Upin and Ipin.
The picture above is the studio for editing, shooting and anything related to film. So you have to prepare a short film as your final project X-(
Overall, to complete this course we have to prepare three project. A 2D animation project, 3D animation project and film. Then you can be a cartoonist, or maybe a film producer.
Besides, you will be teach about how to get idea, how to prepare script, storyboard, film appreciation and others. If you want to know more about this, you may contact them at 09-7473800.
