I've been making films and doing visual effects on indie films for over 15 years. When I discovered Unreal Engine 4 I was blown away by it's realistic real-time rendering engine!  I immediately saw that Unreal Engine (UE4) was a game changer and that it had now become possible for a small studio consisting of a few artists to pull off a Hollywood quality feature length animated film!

In the past it would take hours, if not days, to render each frame of an animation, which made it impossible for an independent artist to complete a full length film.  It would literally take years to render all the frames of a movie!

All this has changed with Unreal Engine 4 - the playing field has been leveled and it is now truly up to the talents and skill set of the artist/storyteller to create their vision.  No longer will you be held back due to limitations of technology.

Join with me as we begin a journey in using this awesome tool-set - I think you will find it not only fun, but extremely satisfying on a creative level.

I was struggling to find my feet with Unreal. This course has been an excellent springboard for me. I am feeling more confident with the interface and using key tools. Thank you Michael!

"An excellent introduction to character animation in Unreal Engine 4, an area of the engine I had left alone until this course because it just seemed too big and confusing a topic.  Fortunately, Michael walks you through all the various aspects of it in an intuitive and friendly way.  

Overall I am more than happy about purchasing this course and look forward to creating my own movies using the technology." ~Russell Morgan
