THE GOAL OF THE COURSE: teach you the work path to create an objective face from a skull, in 3D.
The course is NOT about learning the complete softwares (Osirix, Zbrush, Cinema4D) , but how to use part of them to create serious stuff.

HOW: HOMEWORK & ONLINE Skype with me (5h controlled by Timely app), brochures in your house to do your homework and material to download
DURATION: 12 months or more
WHEN: when you need it, open rendez-vous, no calendar.
FOR WHO: people who want to learn all the workpipeline of Forensic Facial Reconstruction in 3D, who have clear goals and are ready to work hard.
PAYEMENT OPTIONS: every 2 months 308€, total cost = 1850€, or every 6 months 833€ (10% OFF) total cost= 1665€, or one term at the beginning ( 20% OFF) total cost will be =1480€
WHAT YOU WILL BUY:
-12 brochures that will arrive from France in your house (one per month)
-5h Skype (or 10h) "one to one" with me to discuss your work during all the course (*12 months) . Time per month will be 25mn (or 50mn if you choose to enroll before July 5th)
>if the time is not used it will be displaced on the next month, or period. Example: you do not need help on the two first months, you will then have 50mn time to spend on the third month plus the 25mn , total will be 75 minutes (for a 5h skype suscription). The time on Skype will be controlled with Timely app.
-a full real head Ctscan data in Dicom format (you will extract the skull) ,
-a set of basic 3D facial muscles,
-a set of tissue depth markers,
-a basic 3D head and neck, -
-a fragmented skull (to recompose).

IN WHICH LANGUAGE: the brochures will be in english, but the skype can be in SPANISH, ENGLISH, OR FRENCH of course ;).WHAT YOU WILL NEED: at least demo versions of OSIRIX DICOM READER, ZBRUSH, CINEMA4D, VRAYFORC4D, or equivalent softwares.
