He teaches figure drawing at the American Animation Institute, the Masters program of the UCLA Animation Department, Walt Disney Feature Animation, Warner Brothers Feature Animation, Ryhthm & Hues Studios, as well as Disney TV studios in Japan, Canada, and the Philippines. Vilppu has also worked in the Animation industry for 18 years as a layout, storyboard and presentation artist. His drawing manual and videos are being used worldwide as course materials for animation students.

Glenn Vilppu has an unbelievable technique that will teach you how to understand the construction of the human figure so that you can create any pose from any angle from just your imagination.

“Analyze the model, don’t copy the model.” – Glenn Vilppu
Come learn the art of conveying gesture, understanding the difference between drawing for animation and illustration, and improving your overall drawing skills with Glenn’s method for breaking down each step into smaller steps, making the impossible – possible.

Design Camp 2008 July 1, 2008

The Advanced Media Lab is hosting a series of Animation Workshops in conjunction with Design Camp and the Contemporary Art Museum. This is the first time that a digital animation component will be introduced into the Design Camp disciplines and we hope that it will be a sure hit as an additional feature in the future.

We had a fantastic time trashing the lab and creating some exciting stop motion animations as well as a quick stop action short film. We featured non-stop sessions of storyboards and concept sketches, fruit-loop fights, mock-ups and enthusiastic budding directors. With a lot of help from the event organizers, student TAs, camp counselors and featured returning faculty member Ryan DeWitt we were able to do a 5-day workshop and showcase 80 student animations and 5 short film animations on the final Saturday Design Camp Reception. A big thanks goes out to Nicole Welch and Pablo del Valle for helping us organize the events, keeping us on track and stocking us up with supplies!

Graphic Design @ Design Camp 2008Not to be outdone, Santiago PiedrafitaChair of the Department of Graphic Design at NC State University College of Design introduced future design students to the art of Typography and projected light. Emphasis was placed on the process of exploring a visual composition in studies of scale, layering, opposition and tension using graphic pattern, icons and typography. After projecting it at a large scale it allowed students an opportunity to see how layering, juxtaposition and scale change the graphic form and meaning.

The next session for Design Camp is the day camp series starting July 7th and then a final round of overnight Design Campers during the week of July 20th. We are finalizing the gallery and tutorial mini-website so check it out later this month at 3by3.wordpress.com

What kind of hat do you wear!? June 26, 2008

If you don’t know what hat you wear you can find out and if you do know that you have to wear many hats how about trying a different hat on for a weekend!?  If you’re a designer itching with ideas this is a great place to throw them out on the floor and test them out. Pitching skills aren’t necessary just a passion for expressing your ideas and turning them from vaporware into reality. This should be a great opportunity to network and interact with lots of people with a creative flair and tech edge.

Startup Weekend is coming to the Triangle – You can head out and help start a company in a weekend. Startup Weekend will be held at Edge Office, Raleigh, NC on July 11-13, 2008.

Startup Weekend Coming to the Triangle

What’s Startup Weekend about?

Startup Weekend has been described as jazz for entrepreneurs. Put a bunch of talented, passionate people in a building together for a weekend and see what happens. Weekends have taken place around the country. There was even a weekend in Chapel Hill last November. The idea is to launch a company (or multiple companies) in a single weekend.

Who is Startup Weekend for?

It’s all about the people that show up and what the group wants to create. Developers, designers, publicists, bloggers, photographers, videographers, sys admins, SEO experts, lawyers, marketers- anyone who wants to contribute can find something to do. Bored of your day job as a programmer and always wanted to write marketing text? Come to Startup Weekend and do just that. Try something different or do what you are really good at. But come prepared to contribute and to have fun.
