Powerhouse University

Here at Powerhouse we think it’s important to share our knowledge with anyone else who may be interested in improving their animation skills. In order to do our part to keep this tradition alive, Powerhouse animators have created our own training courses which we have affectionately dubbed P.U. These classes, taught by and for Powerhouse employees, teach the basics of how to combine traditional animation with Flash-based puppet animation. Our free course catalog includes lessons on topics such as dialogue animation, character design, digital painting, storyboarding, clean up, and even file construction. Most lessons are accompanied by downloadable project files to help you follow along. Check some out and add a few tools to your animation toolbox.
