What Rich’s Students are Saying

Rich always comes up with great ideas and suggestions that are very helpful whenever I feel stuck at something and they make the job so much easier. He is very considerate and honest with his critiques. His precise critics makes it easier to deal with assignments. I am having a wonderful time learning from him and now I feel much more confidant about my skills.

Rich a great mentor! He is very honest and straightforward with his feedback and can explain complex and abstract ideas with clarity. His varied experience (and the anecdotes that come with it) in both games and feature films offers a different perspective than from my past mentors and it’s always interesting to hear about how things differ in different industries.

I think he dedicates the time and effort that every student needs, he adapts to every level on his class. He’s straight to the point and focuses on the important aspects of the current assignment’s stage and how things will be when student start getting actual jobs.

Richard was a great Mentor, pushes his students to go the extra mile with their animations and does what he can to help in any way possible. In addition, Richard tries to make himself as available as possible outside the Q&A’s so students can always turn to him when they need help.

Richard was amazing. He had something new to teach in class every week. All the Q&As were helpful from the first one till the last one. He was very open to all the questions and tried to answer them and made sure if everyone understood. He was open to put extra time and you could be sure that he is there if you need any help. It is my second time that I pass class 3 and this time I feel very confident about my ability. I feel like I just found what animation is about.
