What Jean-Denis’ Students are Saying
After every Q&A I feel even more inspired and motived to keep on working hard to be able to work in the animation movie industry because Jean-Denis’ enthusiasm is inspiring. He gives us a lot of great points on how to construct better shots and lots of great tips about acting and animation. His Q&A’s are a lot more about the industry as a whole, how to behave for better communication in the industry, good movie shot references and great tips on how to mix together various elements in a shot.
JD is great. He brings good energy to each QA and is generous with his time. He’s given me very appropriate notes for each stage of my shots, careful not to overwhelm me with details that don’t yet matter. He has been a good balance to my eye and the finished product is going to be much better than it otherwise would have. I am really enjoying myself!
