CGtarian is LIVE!

Hi Everyone,

Where has the year gone. I've been super busy working on several projects. The first I'd like to mention is our online animation school at cgtarian.com We have had our doors open for the last year and enrollment has slowly grown each semester.

I've have a few semesters teaching and have found my students to be very inspiring and passionate. It's really great to have a course all my own and be able to teach the skills new students need to create a strong foundation in their animation work. I highly recommend checking out the school and taking a class! Here's our newest on line promo video. It really helps you get an idea of what the school is all about.

Take a class today!

Happy 2014!

Hi and Happy 2014 to all.

I've been pretty busy at work. Editing and recording my online classes for CGTarian. I can't wait for the semester to start this coming March 2014. If you're interested in starting your animation career or just looking to brush up on you skills, sign up for a class with our school! If you have questions, please send me an email!

My class focuses on Body Mechanics and the very foundation of movement. I encourage potential students who are interested in becoming a professional animator to check out my class and the variety of classes that the school is providing. It's going to be super exciting to see my students grow and learn from my experience.

I've also been busy working on a few shorts as Animation Directing at Chavvo Studios. The shorts we produced for Logix Banking came out really fun and was a creative and technical learning experience.

Check out the final product!

All the best to everyone this 2014! Let's dream big and reach for the stars!

CGtarian is open for business!

I constantly get emails asking for advise about the animation industry and how to get in or what does it take to work at a big studio. The answer is: hard work and skill. Having said that, there are a few places I often recommend student go study. Well, here's the newest one! It's called CGtarian.com. I along with some really talented animation co-workers have created a curriculum for beginners - intermediate - and advanced students and professional animators.

My specific course is called "Characters in Motion: Intro to Body Mechanics" I encourage any students and/or professionals looking to polish their skills or get into the animation industry to sign up for a class. The best part about this site is that you can take any course you like at any time, there's no obligation. The courses range from very beginner like "Animation Bootcamp: Intro to Animation" to "Pushing the Limits: Cartoon Animation".

I highly recommend these courses if your interested in animation. The classes consist of a weekly tutorial/video accompanied by an assignment. These courses are all developed and taught by industry professionals. You can take any course for 12 weeks and then be done. Or continue by signing up for another topic interests you. There are no grades, just upfront and honest feedback and weekly critiques based on your assignment by a professional animator! It doesn't get any better than that!
