FEATURED MENTOR

MIKE WALLING

Mike got his first taste of animation at PDI where he worked as a production assistant on Antz and then as a render wrangler on Shrek. Using the rigs and software at PDI, Mike was able to put together an animation reel which landed him his first gig as an animator at DNA productions in Dallas Texas, animating on the Jimmy Neutron movie. Three years later he was off to Blue Sky Studios to work on the feature Robots. Then he worked at Sony Imageworks as a senior animator. Mike is currently back with Blue Sky Studios and serves as a mentor to the students at Animation Mentor.
 
 
 
 
What is an eCritique?
The eCritique® tool is an innovative key element in the Animation Mentor program. Each week, a professional mentor will provide their students with a newly recorded video critique on their weekly animation assignment.  This provides valuable insight, feedback and suggestions on ways to improve students’ weekly assignments and animation skills. In addition to viewing their own critiques, students may also view the critiques of their peers, learning from their mistakes and successes as well.
