Spring 06 Work - Level 2

As usual, this semester we had a great class. All three levels did some great work. In our level two class we focus not only on the assignment, but the character. We really want the characters to be very different from each other. This gets the students to think more about the acting and the situation, than some canned animation assignment. Using the Norman model, our students made everything from Old ladies to little kids. Great Work! Look for updates with more work from level two and the class project Level 3 did. They turned out a 3 minute sequence! You may need to download a media player for linux to view certain movies....

Hey Andrew these students of yours sure are great, congrats everybody!

I have a question regarding, not only would I want to purchase a t-shirt from the Spline Doctors, but I want to sell my own as well. What is the quality like? I'm not so interested in the money, just to get some custom stuff printed would be cool. Anyways just curious, thanks for blogging!

This stuff is amazing! I was just curious as to how long roughly these students have been animating? Do any of them have experience prior to doing the CalArts course?

Again, very inspiring to see this quality of work.

Hey Mat,

The course is not Calarts, but the Academy of Art in San Francisco. Although 3 of our teachers are from CalArts. (Stephen Gregory, Adam Burke and Bobby Podesta) The students are picked for the classes by submitting a reel. Usually they need to have taken the first level class in order to get into the second level class I teach. A cool thing about the program is that anyone can take the class. You just need a good reel to get into the program. I encourage anyone who is interested to apply to the class. As for how long they have been animating... The students have roughly a year of animation classes before they come to our class.

Ah crap! I keep mixing up CalArts and Academy of Art...sorry.

It's amazing that with the right teaching, students can get to an amazing standard pretty quickly. Again, very inspirational stuff being done there.
