Blogs are a great invention, and man we are happy to have one. Not only is this going to be a great window in to all that is iAnimate, we can also help spread all kinds of animation related news from around this creative globe of ours. We can broadcast additions to our family of iAnimate instructors, show off our new rigs the moment they are released (usually a bit before!), and give you glimpses of what some of our most talented members and alumni are creating.


iAnimate Unreal Engine Student Spotlight - Stephen Slack

on June 14, 2019

Stephen Slack Unreal Engine workshop student spotlight

Have a look at this prototype built in Unreal by former iAnimate student Stephen Slack. Stephen was one of the first Unreal Engine workshop student and came into the course with no prior knowledge of UE4. After the 11 hour workshop, he decided to build his own game, taking what he learned and figured out some additional mechanics. This video is a great example of what you can achieve with a little bit of help to navigate the basics of the engine. Visit the Unreal Engine workshop page for more information about the workshop.

iAnimate Creature Student Spotlight - Bre Melvin

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."
