AnimSchool 3D Animation Student Showcase

Our 3D animation programs prepare students for some of today’s most creative positions in the entertainment industry. Learning directly from the pros can give you an edge on the competition as you learn the art of 3D animation.

AnimSchool is different from other courses because our students learn in live web-meetings from some of the most talented animators in the world. In our 3D Animation Program, students use our award-winning characters to learn the art of movement, weight, and balance, then learn how to make them act on the screen.

In our 3D Character Program, students learn to build the characters used for animation. They model the shape of the character, then put in the "bones" and controls needed to make a 3D "rig."

There is an ever-increasing need for professionals with a creative spirit. If you want to work as a 3D animator, modeler, or rigger, we can help you reach that goal. Do you sketch? Do you find yourself fascinated by animated films and 3D games? Take animation courses at AnimSchool to build a future in 3D animation.

At AnimSchool we eat, drink and sleep animation. We share our enthusiasm and passion with our students. AnimSchool has such unique opportunities for learning animation, that many of our students have gone on to work at top studios like Disney Feature Animation, Disney Toon, Blue Sky Studios (Ice Age, Rio, Horton Hears a Who), Animal Logic, Framestore, MPC, ReelFX, Moonbot Studios (Academy Award-winning "Morris Lessmore"), SHED (commercial animation), Vicarious Visions (Skylanders Game), TeamTo Paris (Raving Rabbids), Adhesive Games (Hawken), and Nerd Corps (SlugTerra, Monster High).

Students at AnimSchool learn how to bring 3D characters to life! But since this is a competitive and demanding career, you have to have discipline and motivation, so it helps to have such immediate access to top professionals. It's like joining them right in their home office and looking over their shoulder as they explain things.

Students follow simple exercises to master the basic principles of animation, then build to more challenging assignments, mastering concepts like acting and storytelling. It's about becoming an artist -- for the digital age. AnimSchool even offers free supplemental live and recorded drawing and other art classes.

You'll grow through one-on-one training with animators from some of the best studios every week. Through their training and your hard work, you’ll be able to magically bring 3D characters to life on screen. Appealing, entertaining, and expressive characters is what AnimSchool is all about!

Students who are accepted into our 12-month program can take the three prerequisites then four program courses (11 weeks each) to master and hone their skills in 3D animation.

(Student wanting to take an individual class only or bypass earlier courses, can apply for that through a portfolio review process.)

You can learn animation skills from almost anywhere since AnimSchool is all online--on your computer, over high-speed internet. Using the latest in web conferencing technology, students can learn the craft of 3D computer animation right from home.
