Testimonial from Lorenzo Colaiori - iAnimate Feature student

Lorenzo Colaiori testimony

Hey Jason,

I wanted to write this letter quite a long time ago. Two months ago I moved from Colleferro (a small town in Rome's area with about 24,000 people) to Santa Monica, to work for Riot Games. If, after my iA graduation in May 2013, someone would have told me that in few months I would move to US to work for such a big company, in one of my favorite cities, I would never have believed it. Coming from a country that has almost no animation tradition, and doing a quite a different job (I was a generalist/lighter for brand commercials like Nokia, Nike, etc.), I feel that iAnimate gave me the chance to get the best animation education in the world, with the freedom of focusing just on what I wanted to do, be an animator. I'm still trying to realize how drastically my life has changed, but I'm totally aware of how important iAnimate was.

Thank you so much for making this possible.

Lorenzo

Testimonial from Marcel Pontes - iAnimate Games student

Marcel Pontes testimony

"I chose iAnimate, because of the instructors, rigs, school structure, and the community seemed to be a step up in relation to the other online schools. I enrolled in the Games Animation program, because I'm a hardcore gamer and passionate for games! I want to break into the game animation industry and my main goal is to end up animating cinematic for games.

I'm truly satisfied with the program.
