Geoff King

In celebration of Star Wars: The Force Awakens we want to congratulate Geoff King, winner of the 11 Second Club November Star Wars Competition! There were a lot of great entries this month, but Geoff’s entry won over the voters with its creative interpretation of this iconic Empire Strikes Back dialogue sequence.

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.
