AnimSchool 3D Animation Student Showcase

If you want to learn the art of 3D Animation, we can help. At AnimSchool, we have created an industry-leading 7 course program track that teaches students everything needed to gain employment in the competitive 3D animation industry.


Our program is effective at helping you learn 3D animation for several reasons:

  • Your teachers are industry-leading professionals. In such a fast-paced, changing industry it’s important to learn from those who are at the highest levels of the most elite studios. AnimSchool professors are current animation professionals at Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, Blue Sky, and more and have worked on current industry blockbusters such as The Lego Movie, Rio, How To Train Your Dragon, Big Hero 6, Ice Age, Book of Life, Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar, UP, Wreck It Ralph, Peanuts, and more.

  • Live, interactive online classes. In order to learn, you need to be given honest, critical feedback in a constructive manner that will help you see the difference between your current skill level and the professional level you aspire to. We provide this feedback both during our classes, live with the instructors and through continual student/teacher post class reviews.

  • We teach you how to SEE. As Disney president Ed Catmull points out, “learning how to DRAW is really learning how to SEE”. To truly learn and succeed at 3D animation you need to be able to have a vision of what you want to create - you need to be able to see. Through hard work and excellent instruction we teach you this skill.

  • We know first-hand that learning animation is a process that can take time. As a registered school we are committed to helping guide you through this entire process and beyond - continuing as an advisor and advocate for you post-graduation to help you gain the career of your dreams.

3D Animation Track & Program

At AnimSchool we offer two different programs with prerequiste classes (""tracks""). In our 3D Animation program, students use our award-winning characters to learn the art of weight, movement, and balance - and then how to make those characters come to life on screen. The track and program consists of the following 7 courses:


1. Introduction to 3D Animation
2. Animating Characters
3. Body Mechanics

Program Courses:

4. Body Acting
5. Character Performance
6. Facial Performance
7. Animating Appeal and Entertainment

3D Character Track & Program

In our 3D Character Program Track students learn the arts of rigging and modeling. This program not only goes in-depth into how to build the characters used in animation, but they also learn how to evaluate their characters by trying them in an animation class. This gives our students a great competitive edge as riggers and modelers with animation knowledge are needed in the industry. The program track consists of the following 7 courses:


1. Introduction to 3D Modeling
2. Introduction to Rigging
3. Intermediate Modeling

Program Courses (four of any of these):

- Intermediate Rigging
- Introduction to Animation
- Advanced Rigging
- Advanced Modeling with ZBrush
- Rigging Automation and Tools Development
- Environmental Modeling

AnimSchool Students

*Student should be familiar with Autodesk Maya software before starting our program. Alternatively, they may take our preliminary software-learning course: Introduction to Maya

Our goal with these courses is simple - to help you succeed. We provide the environment where you can learn and grow as an animator. However, this doesn’t mean the road is easy - quite the opposite in fact. AnimSchool is a challenging school that will constantly push you to become a better animator so you can succeed in this competitive industry.
