Brian’s Demo Reel

What Brian’s Students are Saying

Brian has been clear in his lectures, critiques, and email messages. I never felt like I did not understand what Brian was saying or meant, so moving forward and making fixes was never a hassle. He provides good reference and explanation and is approachable with questions and concerns, and uses demonstrations and examples when commenting on work to help show it can be improved or what does not work in it.

Brian’s teaching, demos, notes and tricks and tips are very interesting and enlightening. He has also worked in some of the movies we love and have seen a lot of times so he’s like a star for us!

Brian’s knowledge of animation and skill are at a very high level.  It’s great to have such a talented animator share with us.
