Blog

Blogs are a great invention, and man we are happy to have one. Not only is this going to be a great window in to all that is iAnimate, we can also help spread all kinds of animation related news from around this creative globe of ours. We can broadcast additions to our family of iAnimate instructors, show off our new rigs the moment they are released (usually a bit before!), and give you glimpses of what some of our most talented members and alumni are creating.

New Shorter Schedule & Lower Price!

New Shorter Schedule and Lower Pricing

We have streamlined our workshops to a four session per year schedule, along with a new price point to reflect it. What does this mean for you? You save time, money, and finish sooner! All without compromising the quality of education iAnimate has been known for. The Feature, Creature, and Game Workshops have been reduced to $1698 per workshop! So not only is the schedule more flexible and streamlined for our artists, but the price is more affordable too.

Testimonial from Daniel Alexander - iAnimate Games student

Daniel Alexander testimonial banner

When I decided I wanted to further my education, I knew I wanted to explore the option of taking online courses. There was one problem however, I had no idea which route to go. I did my best to educate myself with all of the options out there in hopes to make the best decision for myself, each had their merits, but ultimately, it was still a shot in the dark. This obviously drew me to choose iAnimate, with a large collection of fun and interesting character & creature rigs, workshops focused on what I wanted to learn, and a great collection of industry veterans to lead the way.

Thankfully, I couldn't be happier with my choice. iAnimate goes beyond offering great character rigs and truly delivers an incredible educational experience.
