Animation Apprentice is proud to present our 2015 Character Performance Demo Reel! Our students are doing fantastic character animation, putting them in the running for jobs in the rapidly expanding animation industry all around the world. We want to make sure we offer the highest quality animation training anywhere in the world - and we are proud of what our students have achieved.
|Facebook hosts our online student group|
Our Facebook classroom is continuously buzzing with new animation tests, as our students upload new work for critique. The online group, open only to our students, is a platform to post animation tests, ask technical questions, and get answers fast. It's a great platform for making sure that everyone on our course is part of a community. It's even better than a traditional classroom, because someone, somewhere, will almost always be online to help you out.
Some of the strongest work that has been done recently has been in the field of animals and creatures, which in part reflects the domestic bias of the UK animation industry towards visual effects work for big Hollywood films. You can see the animals and creatures reel below:
