Character & Creature Animation / Animation Training & Workshops

Testimonials & Philosophy


Animation is a craft. I don't believe we can learn a craft by reading a book or watching a DVD. I believe we learn by doing. The more we do, the better we get. My workshops consist chiefly of exercises which are designed to be completed rapidly and in quick succession. Perfect results are not expected. But the successful completion of each exercise will make success in the next one easier to achieve. Continual repetition of a system of planning and completing animation will inevitably make the student improve rapidly. - Alex Williams
