Jon’s Demo Reel

What Jon’s Students are Saying

I like that Jon shows shot breakdowns each week, it’s fascinating to see how difficult shots were done each stage. The e-Critiques are especially very helpful because Jon pushes our limit so we are able to make the best shots as much as we can.

Jon’s lectures are always very interesting and helpful. His e-critiques are clear and straightfoward. i have been struggling this term and Jon has been very encouraging while also not sugar-coating the issues in my animation. He has been great about pointing out problems and also suggesting solutions.

I really enjoy the format of the Jon’s Q&As. Jon does a great job going over the lecture, addressing questions, sharing his experiences, and showing us cool shot breakdowns. His e-Critiques are fantastic. They’re always clear and concise and packed with great information.
