Creature Animation Student Testimonial - Henry Truong

I just finished the Creature Animation Workshop 1 with Johnny Spinelli and wanted to let you know how much fun I had with the course!  Johnny was an amazing instructor and I learned a lot from his lectures/reviews and he was also kind enough to give us a tour of ILM Vancouver, which was super inspiring.  : )

I wasn't sure what to expect before taking the class, but it really surpassed all my expectations.  It's super motivating to be surrounded by people who are so passionate about animation and it's given me a real fresh perspective on a lot animation techniques.

I'm looking forward to taking some more iAnimate classes in the future and chatting with you guys soon!

Thanks again!

I was enrolled in workshop4 in spring 2014. I live in Vancouver, Canada, currently working as an Animator for Piranha Games Inc. There was a BIG career fair here today. About 30 companies participated in it. Almost everyone who saw my reel immediately recognized iAnimate from its characters. They had nothing but good words about iAnimate students. It was amazing. They loved the appeal in the characters and yeah, they liked the animation too. :)  iAnimate is a great school. I am waiting to return back. Jason, I miss your weekly lectures so much. iAnimate has a great reach and its amazing to be a part of it's community.
