Rigging Dojo was founded to help artists overcome the obstacles of production by focusing on teaching the art and science of character rigging.

We provide 101 level and personal customized training for schools, studios and artists looking to learn new skills or update existing ones.

Our one-on-one Apprenticeship programs have a true mentor-mentee based approach much like actual production. Our mentors work with you to achieve your learning goals, providing a level of personalized online training unique to Rigging Dojo.

Custom training from Rigging Dojo helps students improve techniques regardless of skill level.

We can help you with

  • Skinning and deformations
  • Python Scripting & Programming
  • Mechanical rigging,
  • Creature Skeleton design
  • Animation tool creation
  • Pipeline Setup and improvements
  • Motion Capture editing

If you are not ready quite yet for the intensity of the apprenticeship course, our 101 courses offer professional guidance in a team setting with a slower pace and a focus on foundations for production character TDs.
