"For those of you wanting to learn animation, but have very little experience, I highly recommend applying for this course. Taking the ACB(Animation Career Bootcamp) taught me not only what it takes to support myself as a freelance animator, but also about myself. It showed me the kind of mindset needed when applying to a job or even starting your own business."  

 - Tomas S.  

"Dan Ekis will guide you through not only the technical aspects of creating an animated film, but also the process of keeping yourself motivated and passionate about your craft no matter what that may be."  

- Dane D. (3D Artist)

"Having been working in animation for almost 20 years I recently found myself being forced into pursuing freelance work. I had absolutely no idea where to begin, how to market myself, or even how to motivate myself. Listening to the course and the experiences of someone who has been through the same thing really gave me a new perspective about being an independent animator. Being able to actively participate in a community of animators and artists, give feedback, get advice and receive feedback really makes you feel like your part of an on going process. The motivation it provided is what I needed to keep moving forward.

- Timothy B. (Professional Animator)

"I would recommend these videos to any artist and animator who's trying to develop their craft in a professional or a personal sense. The information presented in these videos is very valuable." 

 - Mike M. (Freelance Animator)
