Don’s Demo Reel

What Don’s Students are Saying

Don’s critiques are helpful and professional, never abrasive. He always has plenty to say and seems genuinely interested in helping us out.

Don has a great eye for critiquing animation and knows exactly what needs to be done to improve a piece, down to which control curve and which attribute. If we have assignments ready he will give us additional feedback during Q&As. His demos cover points beyond the demos in the lectures.

Don’s great. He’s very clear with what his expectation are with the assignments. His Q&As are very helpful. His Q&As both help to clarify and adds helpful information to the weekly lectures by going through his own approach to the assignments. He’s also great at making himself available to students outside the Q&As.

Don was excellent at communicating outside of class with prompt replies. He consistently did our critiques right away on Sundays and even offered us an early critique if needed for our schedules. He also offered to view our shots in class for extra feedback.

He is awesome. When you see him working on Maya its so cool, you see his experience at the industry. I think that his critiques are very objective and he always asks if there are any questions. He is very patient and a great observer.
