What Dave’s Students are Saying
Dave’s feedback is very clear, accurate and fair. I come out of every week understanding exactly what I need to improve and work on and it encourages me to keep learning and keep moving forward. He’s exceeded my expectations of Animation Mentor.
Dave has been very patient and personal with my learning process. He takes the time it needs for explaining things and you can tell that he takes a lot of care of your learning and interests. I think he is a great mentor and has taught me a lot. His Q&As are great because he talks about different topics of animation, not just what we are learning that moment, but also like the world around animation, and it’s great to get inspired!
Dave is a nice guy and is very passionate about teaching and animation. You get the sense that he really cares about the students and their success. The feedback is always great and easy to understand. He’s also good with us emailing him to have a look at our progression throughout the week.
