What Boola’s Students are Saying
The insights from many years of study are a value that cannot be measured. Boola teaches more than just the animation principles, but encourages what it means to “think” like an animator. While sharing said knowledge, Boola exhibits real strength in answering all questions thoroughly and with professional honesty. But I would be remiss if I didn’t bring up his most enduring lesson. “Do or do not. There is no try.” You have to trust yourself to be able to accomplish whatever it is that you set out to do.
In the few short months that I’ve been learning from Boola, I can honestly say that I truly look up to him as the kind of animator that I want to be. Our backgrounds are different but his work ethic, professionalism, and ability to tell it like it is without sugar-coating or hurting anyone’s feelings, are things that I find myself aspiring to. He often writes encouraging and helpful emails each week, and they always help me stay focused and motivated. Boola is awesome!
Boola is an excellent mentor because he treats his students with care and respect. His feedback is always candid, but also leaves it up to the student to figure out how to solve the problems he points out. He doesn’t hold your hand. He always acts professional. When I receive feedback from him, I’m never wondering what he thinks of me, I just take his feedback and GO. He takes time to write encouraging, helpful emails every week. He does all this while being really fun and easy to talk to.
