When I was 12 years old, my parents took me on “The Magic of Disney Animation" tour at Walt Disney World, where I saw REAL Disney Animators creating real Disney Animation. Less than 10 years later, at the age of 22, I became one of the youngest animators ever hired by Walt Disney Animation.
That day, I was just a child who formed a dream of working as an animator for Disney. That dream turned into a goal, and that goal turned into a burning desire that wouldn't let me stop until I achieved it.
This isn't just a course on “how to animate" or "how to become a character animator". This is a course on how to achieve your biggest dreams!
I've reverse engineered the steps I used to turn the dream of a 12 year old into reality. You'll learn what it takes to get your Dream Job at an animation studio, and how to keep that job.
Of course I'll teach you about the 12 Principles of Animation (the fundamental principles that ALL animation is based on), in fact I'll help you turn all 12 Principles into Habits.
But I'll ALSO teach you about yourself: How to motivate yourself to reach those big dreams, and how to STAY motivated even when everyone around you tells you to give up.
You should have a basic grasp of animation, and be able to use animation software such as Blender 3D, Maya, 3DS Max, or any of the 2D animation packages.
The techniques and practices taught in this course can be applied to any form of animation, but you will need to practice them throughout the course.
I explain the concepts clearly, and there are video clips of each exercise being performed or animated, so you can follow along.
The course is 12 weeks long, and requires you to do a small animation exercise every single day. It is broken into sections by week, with each week having 7 videos (one for each day of the week) plus a quiz at the end of each week.
There were many 'dark days' where even I lost faith and felt like giving up on my dream of being a professional character animator.
Now, in my mid-30's, I've worked for Disney, Fox Studios, and I run my own film and animation company - as well as an online animation community. I've managed to live and work in 7 countries around the world on everything from Feature Films, to Television Commercials, Video Games, and even Scientific Research. It's time to share my knowledge.
I'm here to tell you that you SHOULD Dream big, and you CAN reach your Dream Job as a character animator in games, film, television, or any area you desire.
Join me for 12 weeks of mentoring, motivation, and animation training.
I'll see you on the other side.
