Testimonial from Daniel Alexander - iAnimate Games student

on December 03, 2014

Daniel Alexander testimonial banner

When I decided I wanted to further my education, I knew I wanted to explore the option of taking online courses. There was one problem however, I had no idea which route to go. I did my best to educate myself with all of the options out there in hopes to make the best decision for myself, each had their merits, but ultimately, it was still a shot in the dark. This obviously drew me to choose iAnimate, with a large collection of fun and interesting character & creature rigs, workshops focused on what I wanted to learn, and a great collection of industry veterans to lead the way.

Thankfully, I couldn't be happier with my choice. iAnimate goes beyond offering great character rigs and truly delivers an incredible educational experience.

Interview with Bungie Principal Animator - Richard Lico

on September 17, 2014

In our 31st podcast, we interviewed Bungie Principal Animator, Richard Lico. Richard was a Sr. Art Lead on Bungie’s recently anticipated title Destiny. This was Bungie’s first mutli-platform title release since having been exclusive with the Halo franchise, and Richard was a part of the project from its infancy. He was responsible for the overall character animation technology and working with the art director to set the animation vision on Destiny. He’s been in the game industry since 1999, and has a passion for animation and game design that definitely showed in the podcast!

Testimonial from Daniel Bodinof - iAnimate Games student

My name is Daniel Bodinof, I've been a 2d television animator for 14 years, but 5 months ago I had a realization that what I truly wanted to do was animate for Video Games. I'd never touched Maya before and my reel didn't have anything that showed any knowledge of 3d let alone video game mechanics. I knew I needed insider experience and instruction. When I was researching my options, iAnimate's games workshop seemed to be exactly what I needed. I got to learn from David Lam, one of the best in the business. I was given real assignments like you would receive at a studio job, and I was encouraged to push for industry quality. 14 weeks later I had a demo reel that got me a job at my first studio of choice that I applied to. Sounds crazy but its true. Thanks iAnimate!

I was enrolled in workshop4 in spring 2014. I live in Vancouver, Canada, currently working as an Animator for Piranha Games Inc. There was a BIG career fair here today. About 30 companies participated in it. Almost everyone who saw my reel immediately recognized iAnimate from its characters. They had nothing but good words about iAnimate students. It was amazing. They loved the appeal in the characters and yeah, they liked the animation too. :)  iAnimate is a great school. I am waiting to return back. Jason, I miss your weekly lectures so much. iAnimate has a great reach and its amazing to be a part of it's community.
