Blog

Blogs are a great invention, and man we are happy to have one. Not only is this going to be a great window in to all that is iAnimate, we can also help spread all kinds of animation related news from around this creative globe of ours. We can broadcast additions to our family of iAnimate instructors, show off our new rigs the moment they are released (usually a bit before!), and give you glimpses of what some of our most talented members and alumni are creating.

iAnimate Feature Student Spotlight - Chris McCormick

Chris McCormick student spotlight

I just started a new job at Blizzard Entertainment, in their cinematics department. It's incredible so far, and I'm always sure to give iAnimate a lot of credit for where I am. I'd be happy to answer your questions.

iA: Did you get your dream job after taking our workshops?

Yes! Two months after completing my final workshop, I was selected for the Pixar summer animation internship, which was my first industry job.
