Update on The Animation Academy - August 2012

We're making arrangements to expand our program. We're setting up a second classroom that will be dedicated to CG education.

We're planning on offering classes in Character Modeling and Rigging, CG Character Animation, Film Project Development and Video Game Development and more.

We should be in a position to take on students by January 2013 or perhaps sooner.

To qualify for enrollment students must first complete the prerequisite courses in our Level 1 Program. For instance, students must complete Character Design if they are to move forward into Level 2 classes such as Character Modeling. The projects students develop in their Level 1 courses will be used as the basis for the content they create in level 2 CG courses.

We also plan on initiating student projects in Flash and or Toonboom and we'll also have classes in Photoshop for our VisDev students.

These classes will be conducted in small groups with focused instruction. If you're interested in what's ahead with Academy courses and are not currently enrolled with us I recommend getting into the program soon. Complete your basic classes and you'll be positioned for CG training.

I'll be keeping the community updated as things progress.

Keep Creating!

The lovely building in the photo posted above now houses two classrooms for the Academy. Been working on the second room throughout August and we're just about at the point of having it fully functional for advanced groups developing story and film. This second room is bigger than what we're currently using for classes and will be used exclusively for second level courses, project development and production.

The Academy is expanding and we'll be ready for our first group in this new environment by October. :)
