We’re always told that we have to crawl before we can walk. The same is true in animation … you have to know the basics before your characters (and you, for that matter) take the magical first step.

But how do you get started? Well, exploring the wealth of resources available from Animation Mentor is a good place to begin. Our mentors are industry pros behind some of the most popular characters in film, TV, and video games today. And leading the way with instruction is none other than our CEO and cofounder, Bobby Beck:

    Just curious. Do you presently offcer any classes (or are your considering), offering classes for screenwriters who would like to collaborate with animators to bring wonderful feature animation scripts like Frankenweenie and TOY STORY 1,2,& 3 to life? If so, please direct me to the class syllabus so that I may check it out.
