What Jason’s Students are Saying

Jason has a great knowledge in animation and has heaps of advice he can share. He is great at showing examples from his own work and breaking down other peoples work.

Jason not only does great Q&As, he really pushes for us to do extra work where we can, and always happy to give feedback on it. He’s always pushing us to update our PR where he goes and leaves comments there.

Jason goes the extra mile to send us useful learning material, and gives us midweek personal reviews whenever we ask, which is really helpful to keep on track throughout the week. His Q&As are fun and educational so I would recommend him to anyone.

Awesome mentor! Focusing on the idea for a week longer was what we needed to get something really cool going on. Animators always stress on how important planning is, so this was a breath of fresh air. The extra feedback is super helpful and immensely appreciated, it helps you push yourself and your shot to new standards.
