Peter’s Demo Reel

What Peter’s Students are Saying

Peter is very knowledgeable in creature animation and a great mentor. He gives us great polishing tips which are highly invaluable. He not only pushes us to do things better, but also shows where we did good, so that we can keep those traits going forward. Everything is informal with him and that makes the learning experience great! I am very glad that I chose the quadruped locomotion workshop with Peter as my mentor.

Peter has been so supportive. I have enjoyed seeing the work Peter has done. The underwater snake bot demo was an inspiration. When I saw the various stages that Peter worked through I found that inspired me to break down my approach more in my work. I’ve been welcomed and encouraged by Peter to animate the assignments and upload for critique. I had gotten into a lull with animation and with Peters encouragement I feel like I can see where to begin again.

Peter has great engagement and availability with the students. Very detailed critiques. Good examples of animation from his own work.
