Jon’s Demo Reel

What Jon’s Students are Saying

Loved every minute of being in Jon’s class over the 2 terms I had him! My growth as a animator has been beyond the goals I had set for myself and I attribute a lot of that to Jon’s lectures and critiques they are always very precise clear and helpful, and overall just an all around great mentor and teacher.

Jon was always ready to help, responded to all messages really timely and still in-depth. He always was totally honest, helpful and did extra work or crits if the subject or question needed it. His well structured lessons and shot breakdowns never failed to teach a lot of new things in a really easy to understand way. His critiques were always well prepared and thought out, gave great guidelines while still helping develop each student’s own ideas. Jon just was amazing all around.

I absolutely love the way Jon mentors us he has really improved me as an animator. His Q&As are always great and informative overall it has been amazing having him as a mentor.

I like that Jon shows shot breakdowns each week, it’s fascinating to see how difficult shots were done each stage. The e-Critiques are especially very helpful because Jon pushes our limit so we are able to make the best shots as much as we can.

Jon’s lectures are always very interesting and helpful. His e-critiques are clear and straightfoward. i have been struggling this term and Jon has been very encouraging while also not sugar-coating the issues in my animation. He has been great about pointing out problems and also suggesting solutions.

I really enjoy the format of the Jon’s Q&As. Jon does a great job going over the lecture, addressing questions, sharing his experiences, and showing us cool shot breakdowns. His e-Critiques are fantastic. They’re always clear and concise and packed with great information.
