     Erik Morgansen Replay Webinar

    Last week, we had an INCREDIBLE opportunity to link up with professional Industrial Light & Magic Animator, Erik Morgansen, for our What Type of Animator Should I Be? Webinar. Aspiring animators as well as students at different stages of their careers stopped by and made an awesome turnout! This was such an inspiring webinar that we decided to catch up with Erik right after for some additional questions we thought would be applicable to all students and aspiring animators out there, no matter what part of the animation journey you're at. You'll soon find that in whichever track you decide to pursue, anything is possible in the world of animation.

    So, without further ado, read on and become inspired!
