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.

Testimonial From Dreamworks Head of Character Animation

Testimonial From Dreamworks
Head of Character Animation

My name is Olivier Staphylas and I am the Head of Character Animation for the movie "Penguins of Madagascar" for Dreamworks Animation.

I hired Ravi Kamble, one of your iAnimate graduates, based on a recommendation by his teacher Ted Ty. His contribution to the movie has been nothing short of fabulous. Ravi started on the project as an animator but I soon noticed the appeal and entertainment of his work and decided to entrust him with leading "Dave", the villain of our movie. Ravi developed the character by himself, creating his personality and range of motion through performance tests and poses.

The final result is a beautifully entertaining character with loads of appeal and charisma.
I couldn't be more satisfied with the quality of the work he brought to the project. Thank you iAnimate!
