Animondays The Monthly Character Animation Competition Parka Blogs | Art books, Anime, Manga, Movies, Reviews Forums - Animation Training by a former Disney Animator... I really want to give back to the animation community here. I've been a member of 11 Second Club since it was the 10 Second Club (before the year 2000). I really love the community it's grown into! This competition has helped me to really hone my skills, and pushed me to become a better animator. Getting into animation these days is a lot different, and I really miss the old Disney system where you were an assistant to a great animator before you ever handled a shot on your own. I wanted to build something to recreate that mentor type of environment, but I didn't want it to cost what Animation Mentor charges. So I built a free online community (Animation Salvation) which has been through many ups and downs. Here's where YOU come in! The course is selling for $97, but I want to offer it to anyone here on 11 Second Club for only $7. I've released the course on Udemy, since they also have a free app for tablets and smartphones.
Temple of the Seven Golden Camels Become a Professional Character Animator When I was 12 years old, my parents took me on “The Magic of Disney Animation" tour at Walt Disney World, where I saw REAL Disney Animators creating real Disney Animation. Less than 10 years later, at the age of 22, I became one of the youngest animators ever hired by Walt Disney Animation. That day, I was just a child who formed a dream of working as an animator for Disney. That dream turned into a goal, and that goal turned into a burning desire that wouldn't let me stop until I achieved it. This isn't just a course on “how to animate" or "how to become a character animator". I've reverse engineered the steps I used to turn the dream of a 12 year old into reality. Of course I'll teach you about the 12 Principles of Animation (the fundamental principles that ALL animation is based on), in fact I'll help you turn all 12 Principles into Habits. I explain the concepts clearly, and there are video clips of each exercise being performed or animated, so you can follow along.
