      Absolutely amazing teacher!! I couldn’t have asked for a better class!

      I had no previous knowledge in animation and now after the course I’m able to create a short animation by myself!

    • Emily Newman

      As an amateur animator it’s hard to pick tools you want to stick with, so seeing a professional workflow and how they use software and tools was very eye-opening.
