The Highest Quality Instructors
Instructors at Animation Mentor undergo a vigorous screening and training process. This careful evaluation ensures that they are prepared to give our students the best education and the most for their money. Here's how it works:
- Our mentors are almost exclusively referred to us by other professionals in the industry
- We conduct a formal interview and scrutinize their demo reel. We carefully review their accomplishments, the quality of their work and their ability to provide mentorship to students.
- Our mentor manager trains our instructors on the finer points of our educational methodology — including Live Review protocol, assignment flow, directorship, critiquing, class management, grading, and more
- It doesn't stop there – our mentors are constantly trained to become better instructors and better resources for their students
