New Online Animation School: ianimate.net

If you haven’t heard by now…Jason Ryan has team up with Digicel and many of his co-workers at Dreamworks to create a new online school called ianimate.net – The Character Animation School. I have done multiple rounds of his webinars and they have been some of the best training tools I have used. He just had a free webinars that should answer most questions you have about the school and how it works. I think it’s going to be a great school for animators. Check out the webinar here.

The time has come for another Animation Mentor free webinar!! This time CEO/Founder Bobby Beck will interview the brilliant veteran animator Eric Goldberg about his new book. Along the way I’m sure that he will add some great animation tips and it should be a great webinar. Also if you haven’t picked up his book, Character Animation Crash Course…I highly recommend it.

Animation Tutorials and Webinars

Animation Tutorials and Webinars

It’s been about a year since I stumbled onto this site. I first began with some of his tutorials and then was introduced to his webinars. I began watching the way that he animates first in 2D in Flipbook and then brings that into Maya. For me it put alot of the animation principles into perspective in ways that I had not been looking at them before. These tutorials seem to help me realize the complexities of animation and how to break them down so that it is not just what I am focusing on but also to remember why I animate. Why do I spend all of this time consuming my life with all things animation? For the passion! While following Jason Ryan’s site it has brought with it… passion. I actually have fun learning new ways to animate and always trying to better my workflow. Of course everyone is going to have their own BUT, if you can learn something new it will only help your animation. So take a look check them out and maybe even try one out.

So enjoy your animating!
