Our mentors have an average of 14 years of experience as a professional animator. They’ve worked on your favorite feature films such as How To Train Your Dragon and The LEGO Movie. They’ve proven they have what it takes to be the best in the industry and they want YOU to achieve the same.
Our rigs are designed to give you the freedom and flexibility to bring the characters in your imagination to life. With 19 rigs at your command, you’ll never tire of using your imagination to make them run, jump, laugh, cry, and play. Keep your eyes peeled for two more rigs coming out this Fall! (See a sneak peak of Aia here.)
Animation Mentor is the online home of over 5,000 students from 105 countries. Attending Animation Mentor gives you a built-in network that will give you a head start in your animation career.
We know it’s tough to balance school with work, family, and other life responsibilities. That’s why our campus is always online, 24/7. Only have time to watch your lecture at 2AM? No problem, simply stream it when you’re ready. We also offer a fully built-out Knowledge Base in our Support Center, so you can get answers to your questions any time you need help.
This one’s a biggie. After you pass your class, the lecture archive houses all the lectures from that class. Just imagine – 100’s of hours of content from the best in the business – at your fingertips whenever you need!
Animation Mentor offers Career Services to graduates of our program, including providing direct referrals to studios and resources to help you land your first gig in the industry.
You can’t get better if no one tells you what you need to work on. Animation Mentor’s style of feedback and critique will help you grow as an animator and push your work to the next level.
Once you are registered and paid for your first class, you’ll gain access to the Autodesk Education site where you can download Autodesk Maya for FREE and retain access for 3 years.
We don’t offer you just a lecture and a mentor. Once you’re on the campus, you’ll have access to hundreds of assets (including sets and props), supplemental lectures and videos, bonus Q&As with professional animators, and much, much more!
YOU are the reason Bobby, Shawn, and Carlos founded Animation Mentor back in 2005. Their dream was to help aspiring animators just like you to achieve their dreams of becoming an animator. Bobby, Shawn, and Carlos believe in your dream – take the next step and apply today!
Go Bob! We’re so proud of the work you’re doing at Industrial Light and Magic now, too! Go go go!
