AnimSchool students have almost continuous interaction, help, and problem solving with our full-time pros! We work hard to respond to student issues--getting help often in a matter of minutes!
Above all, AnimSchool is our students! We have over 140 students in our programs. They interact frequently in classes, extra sessions, a student web hangout, a very active student Facebook page, forums, and messaging. Our students are excited about learning these 3D skills, so they approach each of their assignments with passion.
AnimSchool was founded in 2010 by David Gallagher, animator, rigger, and former Character Development Supervisor at Blue Sky Studios.
AnimSchool students learn to specialize in a particular field, while also learning supporting skills so students are well prepared for the 3D workforce.
