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.
Watch this fun short some of our instructors and alumni worked on. "Coin Operated" is an award-winning 5 minute animated short film that spans 70 years in the life of one naive explorer. This film was proudly made by independent artists.
We love seeing and sharing what our alumni have been up to. Roy Stein, one of our many talented Feature Alumni, recently released a collection of shots he animated on Blue Sky Studios film "Ferdinand", and they look great! Check it out.
