AnimSchool 3D Animation Student Showcase
Animation has changed significantly in the last few decades. Part of the industry-wide shift from 2D to 3D animation means that more competitive and talented professionals are required to fulfill the needs of this growing trend. Students completing online programs, such as AnimSchool, gain the skills they need for a variety of creative employment options ranging from feature film to gaming and advertising.
AnimSchool is the premiere online school for learning 3D animation, modeling and rigging.
While comprehensive instruction used to require your physical presence in a classroom, modern technology has changed the need for this. Now, students can have access to top working professionals in the industry from anywhere in the world at almost any time.
Who Is Behind AnimSchool?
Former Character Development Supervisor at Blue Sky Studios David Gallagher (Ice Age, Horton Hears a Who, Rio) founded AnimSchool 2010 to teach high-end animation, modeling and rigging with appealing characters to students all over the world. In addition to the full-time staff members, each term AnimSchool employs over 30 instructors from top studios, such as Blue Sky Studios, Dreamworks, Disney and Pixar to work with students to help them master the highest levels of animation skills.
How Does it Work?
There are two different programs offered at AnimSchool.
1. The 3D Character program track teaches students how to make characters by modeling the shapes and then adding structure to make them bend and move realistically.
2. The 3D Animation program track teaches students how to make characters move and act, using facial expressions and body movement to convey emotion and intent.
Each 21-month course of study (three prerequisite courses and four program courses) is designed to prepare you to be competitive in the 3D Animation job market. Not only will you gain the skills you need, you will also foster relationships with a range of established professionals in the 3D industry.
Online programs offer all the benefits of qualified one-on-one instruction without the hassle of moving to school’s physical location. Although online programs such as AnimSchool require the same study time commitment as a physical program, students can be more flexible as to when and where they attend and watch lectures. This is an ideal option for anyone with a current job or other time limitations. Classes are taught via web-conferencing with invaluable live interaction with experienced instructors. Teachers can show their screen to the students and likewise access theirs for help and individualized instruction.
The small class sizes are specifically designed to allow students to receive personal feedback and help from both instructors and peers. Students can use the AnimSchool website and join our exclusive Student and Instructor Facebook page to chat with classmates, get help with assignments or simply to browse the work of previous students. In addition to the regular classes in each course, students have access to live additional instruction in subjects such as art, storyboarding, and digital painting by industry-leading artists and designers. All recordings of every previous art lecture are also available to the students at any time.
Because online programs don’t require a physical campus, extensive facilities and equipment, tuition is a fraction of the cost. In addition, AnimSchool offers discounts and income-based scholarships, monthly payment plans, and spreading the cost even more with the EasyPay payment program.
The instructors at AnimSchool are passionate about making appealing 3D characters come to life. This enthusiasm enriches the experience of every student involved in the program. Students are not only taught to specialize in their field, but also learn supporting skills to make them a competitive presence in the 3D workforce.
