What Jay’s Students are Saying

Great thorough feedback every week! Jay manages to push me to do more while keeping it encouraging! Very down-to-earth approach, and love the tips on how we can push something in a place and tell a stronger story, or make it funnier. Ties body mechanics back into the big goals! I also love the hearty “Let’s have an ecritique!” that kicks off every feedback icon smile Jay Davis

Jay really seems like he cares about us learning so we can succeed in our futures. I also like seeing the clips and hearing about his experiences.

Jay is a great character who breathed quite a bit of new life in to my passion for animation. He made it fun again. Very knowledgeable, whilst still remaining very professional when faced with basic questions.

Jay is a great mentor; I’ve learned a lot from him! He consistently has shown us new ways of looking at our own work, and what to strive for by analyzing good and bad animation; like how the Incredibles milked beautiful poses with moving holds instead of moving constantly. I appreciate his sense of humor and the tone he sets.

Jay is such an awesome mentor. Wether it be his “let’s have an ecritique” greeting before each ecritique or his informative and personable Q&A’s, Jay has helped to reinforce my confidence as both an artist and as an animator.
