What would you like to learn from the Stan Winston School?

    I want to see animation classes; the Stan Winston School could orient the classes around monsters and space to keep the theme going. Animation is a skill you can grasp without spending years in a classroom. If you could break it up into elements of 3D animation, that would be amazing! Example: backdrops (space, haunted house, scary forest), characters, how to's generally, making characters look realistic, you get it. 2D classes would have been my first request years ago before I learned how and developed my own techniques.

    #2 Motion capture!!!!!!! If you can put it into a 3D movie or CGI/real blend, for sure!

    Makeup Effects
    I would like to see courses on full body cast, to make body parts,  as well as full size mannequin, to work from in order to make prosthetics. 
    There is a lot on the wed but nothing comprehensive.
    I would like to make life size mannequin in order to practice first aid, in all type of situation as well as injuries. Even a pregnant woman belly prosthetics would be great for training.

    I would love for someone to do a solid, behind the scenes, paper weathering lessons. Posters, ticket stubs, journals, maps, old money, and really anything to do with paper weathering. There is MORE to this craft than some old coffee/tea and dipping sheets into it. Also, how to make paper products. Passports, manuals, old official documents, thing like that.
