What Animation Mentor Alumni are Saying

Yes! 1000 times I would [recommend Animation Mentor]. In fact if I could do things over I would not have went to my 4 year university and went straight to Animation Mentor. I attribute all that I know in terms of how to animate to AM. Having also worked in production at DreamWorks and sat in animation dailies, the same way students at AM are given feedback on their work is almost identical to how professional animators are given feedback from their supervisors or directors. AM really sets students up for success and it's just up to the student's desire to work hard for their dreams to come true! - Ricky R., California, USA

Being taught by current industry professionals is so valuable and gives the best quality tuition and guidance to be ready for a professional work environment. It also gave me a clear focus what i needed in my portfolio to apply at animation studios. Not degrees and dissertations, just solid showreels and a good attitude. - Elliot M., Dublin, Ireland

Yes, I would recommend Animation Mentor to my younger self. The skills I learned and the feedback I received while there was really worth it! the connections I made were also very worth it, I made friends that were some of my only connections when I moved to Vancouver for my first job and are still pretty good friends! - Etienne D., Montreal, Canada
