Welcome to Animation Career Pro! This school is intended to help anyone train in 2D character animation (using Adobe Animate) or 3D character animation (using Autodesk Maya) or Cross train between 2D and 3D. The classes and assignments here are presented in a step by step fashion for easy progressive learning…each class builds on the previous class and sets you up for the next.
You’ll learn workflow techniques based on my experience as a professional animator and educator to speed up you work flow, increase the quality of your work, receive industry tips and much more. The image at the top of this page was actually from a second year 2D animation class I was conducting in 2015 at St Clair College. It was meant as a reminder to students how to go about a 2D character animation project.
I am offering both 2D and 3D training so that you will have a diverse skill set which makes you more employable as an animator. With the ability to animate in both 2D and 3D you are more likely to be able to start a career in animation. If your already in the industry, you’ll be less likely to be without work.
Feel free to take 2D or 3D. But I need to let you know that most animators know only 2D animation or 3D animation. When you Cross train and come out with a 2D/3D demo reel potential employers will find you more valuable because you will be more qualified to work on any project that may come through the door, and even train new or existing employees to work on new 2D or 3D projects.
If your new to animation I suggest you start at the beginning of the 2d and/or 3d classes and work through them in sequence. With all the free animation classes you do have the freedom to go as far as you want with 2D or 3D and get some of both on your first demo reel. But I do advise all students to complete the courses for maximum success.
If you are already an experienced animator you may only need to take some of the classes to upgrade.
I’m excited to take this journey with you! Become an animation professional and a pro at managing a sustainable animation career – Animation Career Pro!
