What students have to say about Tim

I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I FINALLY got into the animation industry and got hired to animate on a tv series here in Toronto. I have a LONG way to go to becoming a decent animator but I hope you know that you were there for me and helped fan the flame as they say. Once again my SINCEREST thank you and I wish you all the best!

Tim is AWESOME! Although I heard great things about iAnimate going into the program, I still wasn't sure what to expect in terms of teaching. Luckily I couldn't have asked for a better first experience thanks to being under the wing of Tim Ingersoll.
