Compel to learn? That’s history. Check out the new medium to learn – Virtual Reality. It is the next leap in learning. VR is exciting and so immersive that one is compelled to find out more. The edge of paper ceases to exist, encouraging animators in the most exhilarating ways to hone their craft. The “full immersion” into a drawing has to be experienced to know what it feels like. The characters from a page can turn around in space. Freehand – the freedom and joy of discovering the soul of any art form. VR solutions can be engineered to make learning immersive. Experiential learning using the VR technology foundation can be extremely inspiring and engaging for learners as the simulation effect gives a 360 degree perspective.
Animator, The Little Mermaid, Tarzan, Beauty and the Beast, and Duet
Over nearly four decades at Disney, Glen Keane animated some the most compelling characters of our time: Ariel from The Little Mermaid, the titular beast in Beauty and the Beast, and Disney’s Tarzan, to name just a few. The son of cartoonist Bil Keane (The Family Circus), Glen learned early on the importance of holding onto your childhood creativity—and how art can powerfully convey emotion. Keane has spent his career embracing new tools, from digital environments to 3D animation to today’s virtual reality, which finally enables him to step into his drawings and wander freely through his imagination.
