Maya 2020 fundamentals - modelling the real world
Get halfway through a model and find it's an unworkable mess? Can't add edge loops where you need them? Can't subdivide a mesh properly? If any of this sounds familiar check this course out.

Complete Animated Short Movie Tutorial...

is there a beginer to intermediate user tutorial (or set of tutorials) that tackle the creation of an animated short movie (2-5 mins long) from story boarding to final render and production... maybe something that includes concept, modeling, set creation, rigging, texturing, animating, sound mixing, simple voice sync, facial rigging and animation, and so on, to produce a complete animated short movie...

Not going to happen in one tutorial

Organic Modeling and UV layout

Hard Surface Modeling

ZBrush Texturing normal map creation, lighting eccetera



Putting it all Together

Some Dynamics as you may need some for a movie of this length.
Introduction to Fluid Dynamics in Maya

Introduction to Dynamic Concepts in Maya

That should get you started just to say if your just starting out in Maya a 5 minute movie is a massive project. I'd expect 3 - 6 people to work on something like that for more than a few months. Depending on the type of project.

Best of luck to you

thank you so much Dave, these tuts are very helpful... maybe in the near future, SimplyMaya can create the ultimate tutorial(s) for something like this, where every aspect of it is dealing with the same characters and project...
