We've had several incarnations of the school since we launched our first class on January 19 1998. Here we are in the summer of 2014 with 2 1/2 years at our present location and we haven't shared what we look like until now. That's what happens when you're busy creating all the time.
I'm pleased to share views of the main classroom at The Animation Academy with you. The ones you see below were taken by former student Chance Raspberry who has gone on to fame with "The Simpsons" and with his "Little Billy" franchise. Chance frequently stops by and engages in sessions. These photos were taken with his iPhone after we wrapped up one afternoon. Click on the images for a better view.
Here's a couple of shots of Joel Valdez as he conducts the Character Design 2 class this past week. We have some very talented students in this group.
Good things happen at the Academy within this special environment we enjoy. We're located in the geographical center of the international capital of the business in the heart of Burbank California. A wonderful place to be.
