What Jay’s Students are Saying
Jay’s background and experience make him a wise animator and a talented mentor. Because he comes from a 2D background we learn new and awesome ways to see animation.
He always is open to new ideas, and always has fresh ideas on how to carry out any scene. I also enjoyed that he respects the learning process from students and I enjoyed having classes with this mentor.
Jay covers all the theory very thoroughly in the Q&As and takes his time to also give examples/information from his own experience. Overall, Jay is a very excellent mentor with lots of industry experience where you can learn a lot from.
