When I heard a few years ago that Jason Ryan was about to start iAnimate, I was instantly excited about the idea and wanted to be part of the first group of students. I had taken online classes before, but I felt I needed to refine my skill set. You can imagine that I was really excited about the iAnimate concept to prepare animators for feature productions by working closely together with top notch feature animation instructors and mimic a production environment during the classes. I was blown away by the quality of the classes and the knowledge of the mentors during the one-on-one weekly reviews. It’s a very special feeling when you can discuss your work directly with your mentor in person when you are at the other side of the ocean.
Also the rigs that iAnimate provides are top quality fast rigs that are a joy to work with. They have so much appeal that I felt at times that we were spoiled a bit with these new toys that were given to us every workshop.

In our 33rd episode and last podcast for 2014, we interview three iAnimate students who had the opportunity to work on a very unique and exciting project here in our Game animation workshops. Peter Thorneycroft, Ryan Haynes, and Chris Figat help lead in the participation and development of this project titled Lune. Lune is essentially a test 'game' level created in Unity for our students to mimics the pressures and expectations that will be placed on them in the professional environment, as well as showcase their talents as valuable artists. A playable demo reel, if you will. It was interesting and fun to hear about their ups & downs with working on such a project, along with having our very own Ric Arroyo be their director.
