Bre Melvin student spotlight

"iAnimate's Creature Workshop 3, Flight School and Fantasy Creatures, didn't just help me improve my technical understanding of animation, but provided we with a deep and thorough knowledge of bird anatomy, mechanics, and behavior. When it comes to flight, Brendan Body knows his stuff, and thanks to his help, I am now professionally animating birds on a daily basis. Understanding of flight is rare in the industry, and it's worth learning, whether you're a veteran animator or just starting out."
