Hello! My name is Gianni Vaccaro, and I am an animation instructor based out of Milwaukee, WI. My film and animation educations came from my studies at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee - though I have been making videos since the age of 12. I specialize in stop-motion, 2D animation, puppetry, and claymation. I’m so excited to make cartoons with you!
Animations are something that most people have seen, often we call them “cartoons”. In my classes we will focus on the fundamentals of how to make animated videos, as well as how to make our animations believable. We will explore different forms of media such as paper and pencil, clay, photography, and additive animation.
Animating is a great and fulfilling art form because of its ability to bring your ideas to life. I am excited to join you on this journey!
