One of Nicole’s earliest film jobs was to help restore the original Fantasia animation. That restored footage was used in Fantasia 2000.

What Nicole’s Students are Saying
Up to this point, Nicole is probably my favorite mentor that I’ve had since starting AM. She gives great feedback, covers topics thoroughly, and gets the class members engaged in the Q&A’s by asking great questions. She gives Maya demonstrations & provides great real world insight into the industry. She also is super prompt about the eCritiques, getting them done on Sunday afternoon’s.
Nicole is an incredibly knowledgeable and inspiring creature animation mentor. She’s explained animation in a way that none of my mentors have before. She has always been calm and emphasized being good to yourself as you learn and enter your field. I deeply appreciate her clear value for work/life balance and mental health that is so lacking for my generation. Nicole is a great contrast against my previous bouncing-off-the-walls mentors, while still being a crazy animator to the core!
