What Dave’s Students are Saying

Dave, was always punctual to class, well prepared with interesting lectures & animation legends, and he really loves animation which shines through in his teaching. His breakdowns of shots really help me think about what type of acting I want to put into my shot. Dave, also answered questions outside of class which given how busy he must be is really awesome and sometimes really saved my work, especially when it related to an adjusted shotcam. Overall I would recommend Dave to any student.

I love how David sends out emails about “The Legends”, legendary animators from history and who are alive today. So much great information. David is super clear about what he’s looking for from our assignments each week, which is awesome. His lectures are always packed with information, and we frequently go over the allotted class time. He loves questions and has lots to say in response to each.
