Frequently Asked Questions

Feel free to use the contact link in the menu to reach out as well.

How much does this cost?

$1,997 for the mentorship tier, whether you choose the 7-week accelerated version or want to spread the same amount of mentorship and lessons over 14-weeks instead.

$997 for self-study, no mentorship, but I would be available for technical software questions.

What if I don't have time to complete the challenges?

You will have lifetime access to the material, but not to reviews. The reviews are limited to the length of the course so if you are not submitting a challenge each week I will have nothing to review.

What if I don't think I can animate?

First, spend time animating before judging yourself. You won’t be good at something you’ve never devoted any time to learning and practicing, no one will. Fill out the application above and I can point you in the right direction if you’re not ready for this program yet.

Am I too old to take this program or switch careers?

No. All that matters is your skill level. No one cares how old you are.

I switched careers when I was 26, sitting in class with 19 year olds. I know the feeling like you’re too late. You’re not if you’re willing to put in the time and be patient with your progress.

 

Don't I need a college degree to get hired?

No. Degrees only come into play if you’re trying to move to another country where they like to see a college degree to qualify for their visa, but even then it’s not a deal breaker as most countries accept years of professional experience in lieu of a degree.

You don’t need any degree to get hired in animation. That’s the beauty of it. All that matters is your work. 

Can I skip ahead to a more advanced module?

The intermediate and advanced modules are being created now and are not ready for enrollment.

Once they are completed they will also have an application process for anyone wanting to skip the Beginner module.

 

Do I have to have an amazing computer to animate?

No. We’re not lighting or rendering, we’re not doing simulations all of which take a lot of computer power.

Luckily animation is less intense and doesn’t require the latest and greatest computer to perform.

 

When are the reviews?

Since I am actively working full time for an animation studio in London I become available in the evenings (for my timezone). Specific times will be determined. If you’re unable to make one of the available times that occur twice per week I can record my review of your work or any questions you may have. In addition there are open office hours for one day on the weekend in case you need extra help. That means you can potentially see me three times each week of the program.

Do I need to know Maya before taking this?

Nope!

This teaches you Maya from the ground up, no experience necessary.
