Congratulations to Ivan Oviedo, returning winner of the 11 Second Club August Competition! There were a lot of great entries this month, but Ivan’s entry won over the voters with its excellent mechanics and appealing performance!

Dana’s background includes “lots of years” of dancing and acting. Then she saw Toy Story and became immediately inspired to pursue animation. She felt that her performance experience, along with her logic for computers, made animation the perfect pursuit. After graduating from The Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, Dana soon began animating for games, television, and feature films. Today, she is a freelance animator and teaches at both Northeastern University and Animation Mentor. Her partial list of credits includes Flat Frog, Halo 3: ODST, Independent Lens, Rescue Heroes: The Movie, Shallow Ground, Everyone’s Hero, and The Wild.


What is the eCritique® Tool?

The eCritique Tool is an innovative key element in the Animation Mentor program. Each week, a professional mentor will provide their students with a newly recorded video critique on their weekly animation assignment.
This provides valuable insight, feedback and suggestions on ways to improve students’ weekly assignments and animation skills. In addition to viewing their own critiques, students may also view the critiques of their peers, learning from their mistakes and successes as well.
