What Shaun’s Students are Saying

Shaun knows what he’s talking about. He makes very good and precise points in his critiques and not only point out flaws but also helps improving them with good ideas and suggestions. His Q&A’s are always very interesting. I especially liked those where we all critiqued each other’s work. Not only does it give us an extra constructive look on our work from other points of view, but it also helps us sharpen our own critical look on our work. Great idea.

Aside from being genuinely pleasant, Shaun was very hands on and attentive, identifying my global strengths and weaknesses and working on me as an animator as much as on whichever shot I was on at the moment. He used critique and hangout time very effectively.

Shaun stresses the basics of animation that sometimes gets ignored when you are trying to learn the basics of acting. His in class critics of our work along with the class really helps to strengthen our eyes for animation.
