Character Animation Program: Welcome to Week One

Week1 AMStaff Character Animation Program: Welcome to Week One

The start of a new term is always an exciting time. So as we open the doors to Fall 2012, let us be the first to welcome you back to campus. Or, if you’re new to Animation Mentor — we welcome you to your first day.

Soon, you’ll meet your mentor and your classmates. You’ll get reacquainted with old friends and make new ones. Then you’ll find yourself resourcing each of the Animation Mentor resources … including this amazing/thriving/global wonder that we proudly call the Animation Mentor community.

But you should also familiarize yourself with all the video references we have available. Certainly, our collection of Student Showcases is inspiring … but allow us to point you to our Tips & Tricks, including our most recent by Animation Mentor alumnus and current mentor, Alison Sanders. Alison shares the value of staging in your work. Check it out.

On behalf of the entire crew, we wish you the best for a great Fall 2012 term.
