Community
When we first founded Animation Mentor in 2005 – we were the first and only online animation school. This journey to be the best place for animators to learn their craft online has grown past our wildest animations. To date, we’ve educated more than 5,400 artists from over 105 countries. We know that we would not be Animation Mentor without the rich diversity of our students, alumni and other community members.

The Animation Mentor community has a remarkable and indescribable energy. You’ll be immediately drawn in by that energy. You’ll feel like you truly belong here, because you do. You’re bringing talent and commitment and a unique perspective — and continue to develop new skills, new friends and inspiration along the way.

We applaud you, our community, our tribe, our friends. The best is yet to come and we are excited to share the journey with you.

We couldn’t be more excited to see our community grow and become more involved in helping us shape the future of education and production. As we move forward our goal is to invite our community to help us push this even further and we look forward to having their incredible input! Let’s keep it up!

- Bobby Beck (CEO and co-founder)

    I’ve been following Animation Mentor since I stumbled onto Tips and Tricks in 2009. As a mature age animation student in Australia, the Animation Mentor community gives me courage. I’m saving up to get access to the whole community – What an awesome prize this would be and one step closer to being ‘alone no longer’.

    The Animation Mentor Community has really changed the entire path of my life. I’m currently in the second year of my coursework in Animation and Visual Effects and I wouldn’t have had the confidence to pursue my passions as a career without the inspiring work of Animation Mentor. Seeing the success that their student’s achieve really gave me hope that I could follow in their footsteps and make a real career out of doing what I love.

    The Animation Mentor Community is a place where you learn to ‘Plus’ work.
    As an international, I’m extremely excited about the AMP Pipeline. No one can Plus alone.
    Animation Mentor really seems to know what it takes to work at the places I’ve dreamed of.

    I am always blown away by the quality of work and artist in the AM community. The fact that I can network with other artists, get insights, advice and critique in my journey to becoming an animator is totally awesome. It is very reassuring to know that there is always someone to help and learn from in the community.
