In this course, you’re going to learn how to make comedy cartoons that got me over 1 million views, almost 200K likes, and over 6000 followers on TikTok in just 2 months!
My TikTok channel - DRS Chicken - achieved those numbers by making short cartoons satirizing Formula 1 motorsport. My hope with this course is to help you achieve similar or even better numbers by making satire cartoons about a popular niche that people want to watch!
By the end of this course, not only will you learn my workflow and pipeline for making cartoons at speed, but you’ll also put it into practice by recreating a satirical Itchy & Scratchy episode by substituting Itchy & Scratchy with 2 characters in your niche!
In order to make this cartoon, I’m going to teach you how to:
- Find a niche to make content about
- Write short video scripts for said niche
- Record the audio for your script using Audacity
- Draw characters, backgrounds, and inanimate objects using Adobe Illustrator
- Animate & lipsync characters using Adobe Character Animator
- Compile it in Adobe After Effects, and finally
- Upload it on to TikTok
This course is great if you’re new to animation, don’t know where to start, and just want to learn as quickly as possible how to produce cartoons and share them with the world.
This course isn’t a comprehensive Adobe Illustrator course or a comprehensive After Effects course or a comprehensive course of anything really.
The focus will be on how to make cartoons as quickly as possible, instead of how to be really good in each application. I’m more like…showing you how to use enough functionalities of each program to put a cartoon together, rather than showing you expert techniques in each application.
My hope is, once you’ve applied the basics and created the Itchy and Scratchy cartoon, you’ll feel confident and motivated enough to make your own cartoons about your niche that will consistently get you at least 10s of thousands of views per video, and eventually over 1 million total views in a couple of months.
I hope to see you inside the course!
