Why an introduction workshop?

Our four workshop program is pretty challenging and that’s exactly what we intended. We’ll fill your mind with a great amount of technical knowledge and work really hard on your artistic skills with many assignment. iAnimate Games students greatly benefits from this approach, we tend to push them further more than they think they can go, make them progress much faster than they expected. This approach also prepares you well for the reality of the industry. That being said there’s a difference between being pushed hard and being completely overwhelmed. That’s why we’ve created a new introduction workshop for less experienced animators, making sure we give them all the tools and knowledge they need to hit the ground running when enrolling into the program.
