What Kevin’s Students are Saying

I enjoy hearing about Kevin’s adventures working in the industry. His Q&As are very informative in regards to animation tips and how the animation industry works. You can ask him anything and get a detailed response. Also, his grading is tough but fair, following professional standards, which I value a lot. It’s nice to have an honest gauge of where my skill level is at.

Kevin tells it the way he see’s it from a professional point of view. He knows what it takes to succeed in this industry so he has very high standards which I think is helping me improve my skill set on week to week basis. His e-crits are exact and to the point, and his Q&A’s are always a joy and thought provoking.

I think that by following Kevin’s advice I am on the way to becoming an animator.
