AnimSchool 3D Modeling & Rigging Student Showcase


So you want to become certified in an animation career, but you aren’t sure if a 4-year traditional degree is the right fit for you? If you are creative, driven, and understand computer basics, you may be a candidate for an animation school. The 3D animation industry has grown significantly in the last few decades, with animators needed for everything from feature films to video games and advertising. Want to find your niche within the 3D animation field? You may be able to enroll in a program at AnimSchool.

AnimSchool's mission is to be the premiere online school for learning 3D animation, modeling and rigging. Our programs are designed around your needs and we offer a variety of benefits:

  • Flexibility

    Because AnimSchool is online, you have the flexibility to “attend” class from wherever you are. Using conferencing software means you can participate and receive feedback as the class is actually being held, or you can watch the recorded version later for makeup or reference.

  • Experience

    Another advantage of an online school: students have access to some of the leading experts in the 3D animation industry. In addition to the full-time teachers, guest instructors from top studios like Dreamworks, Disney, Pixar and Blue Sky Studios are also on hand to share their knowledge with students. Each class is designed for one-on-one interaction and students get continual feedback during each term.

  • Peer Interaction

    Students can browse the work of all the students, collaborate and comment on each others’ work, chat about the industry, and get help with their assignments.

  • Payment Options

    Not only is the tuition a fraction of the cost of brick-and-mortar schools, but AnimSchool also has the option to pay monthly, and even break up the payments to a very manageable $362 per month.

  • Free General Courses

    Beyond the regular classes, AnimSchool offers our students numerous free extra courses designed to help enrich their skills and get even more help. Multiple “General Reviews” sessions each week allow our students to get extra feedback on their assignments from one of the instructors. Additionally, AnimSchool hosts different industry-leading artists and character designers most terms to help students develop their art skills. We hold art classes on drawing, digital painting, storyboarding and character design. Since students can’t always attend live, all these General classes are recorded and made available to AnimSchool students to watch whenever they want.

Although there are benefits to attending an online program over an on-site program, each student should understand the commitment and effort required. 15-20 hours per week is recommended for completing AnimSchool Studentsassignments. Those who want to excel should spend closer to 40 hours per week.

With access to some of the leading professionals in the 3D animation field, and smart time management, you too can gain the skills you need to be competitive in the animation industry.

AnimSchool is a registered, certificate-granting school, teaching students in two 12-month certificate programs (plus 9 months of prerequisites, totaling 21 months). In addition to training beginners, AnimSchool also offers upper-level courses for riggers, modelers and animators who want to continue to enhance their skills.
