FEATURED MENTOR

JON COLLINS

Jon's true passion in animation didn't come until he saw Toy Story. Since then, he realized he wanted to become an animator. During his last semester at the Academy of Art, Jon earned an apprenticeship at Industrial Light & Magic. He then moved back to the East Coast for a chance to animate on Ice Age: The Meltdown at Blue Sky Studios. An opportunity landed him at Pixar where he has been working since. He animated shots for the Finding Nemo ride down at Disneyland, WALL-E, and most recently Up. Jon is currently working on Toy Story 3. Jon is also a current mentor 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.
