Student Testimonial - Nicholas Cooley
"After college, I felt like I wasn't where I wanted to be animation-wise. I knew I wasn't career-ready and wanted a stronger skill set. I reached out to a professor of mine, and he recommended IAnimate over the others."
“iAnimate allowed me to chase my dream of animating. I now work remotely at Studio 369. I am currently working on a game called Metalcore. If I didn’t join iAnimate, I'd probably be back at the factory I was working stacking boxes.”
“Sign-up! They review your demo reel and place you based on that. After that, look for an instructor and a time that works best for you. They have many different instructors from many different backgrounds, as well as different times to fit anyone.” Nicholas said to animators who wanted to join iAnimate.
