About Our Instructors

Your work is critiqued live, and recorded for later re-watching, from top professional animators with years of experience and have worked at many of the top studios around the world. These live reviews are very important because it simulates the real studio "Dailies" environment.

Bill Tessier

Bill Tessier

Bill currently works as an animator at DreamWorks Animation where his credits include "Flushed Away", "Bee Movie", "Monsters vs. Aliens", "How To Train Your Dragon", and "Kung-Fu Panda 2". His career began, however, at Sony Pictures Imageworks where he interned for a summer before being hired to animate on "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," his first film. During his five years at Imageworks he worked on "Stuart Little 2," "Matrix Revolutions," "The Polar Express," and "Open Season" among other projects. His interest in animation really grew out of his love of stories and storytelling. He holds an M.F.A. in Animation from the Animation Workshop at the UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television whose philosophy of "one person one film" taught him how to produce his own animated films. Previously Bill has taught introductory animation classes at both the UCLA Animation Workshop and Laguna College of Art and Design. In his free time, Bill loves to read, work on carpentry projects, and particpate in Scottish Country Dancing because it's crazy fun!
