Testimonial from Juan Diego - iAnimate Feature student

Juan Diego testimonial banner

After years focused on the gaming industry, I felt the need to go further in the level of subtlety and polish of my work. I wanted to make the jump from games to animation feature films, but my reel was missing some decent acting pieces! With this goal in mind, I decided to enroll Feature Animation Workshops 4 and 5, while working fulltime during 2013. Tal Shwarzman and Stephen Melagrano are outstanding instructors. I worked really hard to reach the pro level required by them. But the effort paid off. I sent my new reel to Lightbox Entertainment and I've been hired for their upcoming feature film "Capture The Flag" (Paramount worldwide distribution). And....I cannot be more thrilled! Thank you, iAnimate!

iAnimate Master Classes at Pixel Mini

Pixel Mini

Did you enjoy our Pixel Challange Master Classes we had a few months back? Well, we've got more. Pixel Mini Event (Pixel Challenge without the challenge) in Quebec City is a side event that will feature two iAnimate Instructors that will be held at the Loews Hotel Le Concorde on Tuesday October 29th during Cartoon Connection Canada, an international convention of animation and video game professionals:

Ken Fountain will be giving a master class on using attitudes and body language to interpret, simplify and caricaturize complex expressions in an animated character. Stephen Melagrano will talk about the process of creating an animated character, from its body mechanics to its emotional credibility.

The pixel event will happen during the Cartoon Connection Event on October 28 to 31th.

We're really pleased to bring these speakers to Quebec City. This is a great opportunity for animation professionals to gain in-depth knowledge and added experience.
