What Chris’ Students are Saying

Chris Hurtt is an amazing tutor. He has so much knowledge and experience in the field. His advice along with his critiques has really provided me with the tools that helped elevate my animation to an advanced level throughout my learning experience with Animation Mentor.

Out of all the mentors Ive had so far, Chris has by far been the best. He responds to your emails with time to make changes he notes, he always has a working solution for the things you struggle with, and there is never a moment where he says ” I’m not sure about that, you’d have to ask around.” He has a great way of teaching and my work has improved dramatically from last term working under him.

Chris answers all of our questions very patiently, in the Q&A and also during the week. Gives detailed and helpful feedback on our critiques. The Q&As are very fun and informative. He prepares a lot of subjects to discuss and asks which are the ones we would like to talk about the most so the classes are always the most helpful for us.

I think Chris is not only a good mentor but also a very good person. To me he was best when giving critiques, he was very supportive and positive, and tried his best to give the most info on what we were creating. He understood what we were going through and that was in itself very reassuring.

What I like the most about Chris is his teaching method. He is very organised about the topics and informs us in advance. This helps me to keep my mind focused on what I am going to learn every week. Every concept, all tips & tricks I learned from him is just amazing. Even I liked the way how Chris solved doubts in Q&A sessions. Everything was in detail. I am glad I learned animation under his guidance icon smile Chris Hurtt
