Design Bootcamp vs. Illustration For Motion
Here’s what some alumni have to say about their experience in Design Bootcamp vs. Illustration For Motion.
“I think of it this way: in Animation Bootcamp, pretty much everything is handed to you, and you make it move. In Design Bootcamp, you need to come up with your ideas, make moodboards, find matching assets and put things together. Illustration For Motion is even broader than that – you can make literally anything happen, but that can also be challenging, since your possibilities are endless. Nothing is holding you back anymore, and you’re the king of every frame.”
“Aside from the content being very different, if you are already comfortable with Photoshop then it’s just a matter of whether you’d prefer to work on designing using assets like photos or if you want to improve in your actual drawing/illustration ability. When I took Design Bootcamp it was really my first serious foray into Photoshop, so there were a few times I felt overwhelmed. I feel much better about Illustration for Motion because I am accustomed to the software now.”
If you are debating between which course to enroll in, there is no wrong choice! It just depends on which skills you want to strengthen.
