Jason's demo reel

I love to teach and I love to Animate. I think to learn animation, you need to stand over the shoulder of a feature quality animator and watch how that person approaches their shots from the early concept stage all the way to final polish. Watching as they come up against and over come unforeseen obstacles. I have a work flow that approaches animation in a structured, creative, and most importantly a fun way.
There is a huge need in the Industry to find fully trained fast animators to hire. Colleges don't specialize and books are all theory and not practical, I will be animating right before your eyes so you can see step by step how to apply the principles and foundations of animation to real shots.

After I left Walt Disney Animation Studios back in 2007, I began working on the most complete animation training program ever.  I recorded myself animating 18 shots from a beginner level all the way up to Advanced Dialog shots.

What's the Webinars about?

They are a set of animation demos, recorded from the live virtual classrooms, where I took "Animation Master Classes" and showed how I would approach developing these ideas into dynamic sequences for a showreel piece or a short film.

Extended Training

While doing the Tutorials and Webinars, I met many animators who paid "through the nose" to go to the best colleges and universities around the world with the worst part being their teachers didn’t have a clue about feature quality animation. So we started iAnimate.net, a complete set of live workshops designed to target all your animation needs.
