My student on TV in LA - August 25 2013

Postby Charles » Tue Aug 27, 2013 11:47 pm

Things have been pretty good lately at my school The Animation Academy in Burbank. For some reason the past few weeks it seems like the world is catching on to us. After many years of dedicated service to the industry and community we're being widely referred to and getting increased activity and enrollment.

The momentum keeps building as one of my students made a surprise appearance on local television in Los Angeles on the venerable 9:00 Sunday Morning News on KTLA. I started getting phone calls from friends who told me their kids saw someone on the air who said he was my student and mentioned my school.

Turns out Carlos Del Castillo and his father were on the program. Carlos is a very talented young artist who started with me a few months ago at age 12. He's among our youngest students as he's recently turned 13. We take on young artists who exhibit exceptional talent. During the broadcast he mentions my name and acknowledges The Animation Academy in Burbank. :)
