Go to Class

Watch your instructor actually animate the assignment before you do it yourself, everything is explained. You'll learn industry techniques, get tips and hear about working as a character animator in the industry. We've put together a complete character animation curriculum. Each one of our in-depth video classes is designed to build on the previous lesson and prepare you for the next.  

Do the Assignments

After watching your class download the project file and begin your training. Refer back to the class anytime. Each one of the project files is already layed out for you as it would be while working in an animation studio. This means that the Flash or Maya file already has a rigged character, lights, (if need for the lesson) all ready to go. Just Open the file and start animating. Your instructor will be there for you along the way.

Mentoring and Support

In addition to Chris' industry experience working as a character animator, supervisor and director he has taught animation at Ryerson University, and currently at St Clair College. Visit the about page to learn more about his credentials and teaching experience. Your work will be reviewed every week and sent back with clear feedback and details illustrating what looks good and where things need improvement.

Get a Job

After you've completed the program we will continue to provide support by showing you how to assemble a professional demo reel. We'll guide you on how to make it presentable (the do's and dont's) and help you further finesse your work so that it shows well to studio professionals who will be seeing your demo reel for the first time and deciding who they should call in for an interview.
