In 2021 Quickdraw went through a few upgrades, and one of the most exciting is the debut of our brand-new Ditogear Animator Cube camera armature set up in our previous McInnes studio (now Animator Cube Studio!) 

This amazing piece of equipment is set up so you can capture images from every direction. Using our Dragonframe DMX Controller you can change the angle, height and direction of the camera throughout a 3D space that’s perfect for stop motion animation and even photogrammetry (scanning real-life images into a 3D digital environment)! 

We do know, however, how intimidating learning new (and expensive!) hardware can be, so we’re announcing two sessions of official Animator Cube training! At the end of one 4 week session, members will be given an “Animator Cube” credential on their membership, which allows them to use the studio without staff supervision.

SESSION TWO IS NOW FULL - PLEASE SIGN UP FOR THE FIRST SESSION! Thank you to all who are participating!

Note: For COVID-19 safety, we are limiting our class sizes, so two sessions will be delivered to make sure people have a chance to learn.
