Ray’s Demo Reel

What Ray’s Students are Saying

Ray has demonstrated the full capacity of what a mentor should be doing at animation mentor. In Ray’s eCrits he actually breaks down every minute detail in your shot some things I will have missed or have barely thought about. His live QA’s goes into great length about the course matter of the week by gives examples in traditional animation and live action.

I can say Ray is my favourite mentor so far. He’s a great animator but also an excellent teacher. He genuinely cares about the growth of his students. He is very encouraging and doesn’t make you feel like a rookie. His Q+A’s are very informative and fun. I feel comfortable asking a question at any point and he let’s you email him and he get’s back to you very quickly.
