Elliott’s Demo Reel

What Elliott’s Students are Saying

Elliott is always encouraging us to get in touch outside of Q+A if we have any questions which is really great. I like the way he teaches because he makes sense and gets his points across. Can’t ask for much more then that really! The critiques are great, and he’s always been clear in “what” and “how” to go about changing for the revisions.

Elliot is a great mentor overall. Not too strict, not too easy going. Going into a new class, it can be quite daunting with a new mentor. As someone who finds it hard to approach people in general, it didn’t take a long time to feel comfortable. He always does demos related to the assignment at hand, which is super helpful.

I’m really glad of my choice of mentor. I like that we work on real projects, solving real problems we face with our work. Being able to see the work of our mentor is really helpful. And what is also helpful we learn from our and others mistake. I give Elliott high praise because I feel I get very much information needed to make progress in my work and it pays off in each project. Maybe it is personal opinion, but for me what I get in this class is everything I will ever need for any upcoming task or project.

Elliott is a great mentor. He is unbelievably inspirational while still being down to earth and realistic in his teaching. His hands on Q&A show a lot of “how work is really done” which is a tremendous help in trying to find your own workflow. I find myself so motivated to keep learning and going further thanks to him.

I have learned a ton from Elliott. What he has brought to the table for me personally has been an eye opener. He has been very informative and for me, his teaching style and personal touch was much needed.
