I have been meaning to blog about this for some time, but have been very busy.  I had the chance to take some classes at The Animation Collaborative in Emeryville, CA- right across from Pixar Animation Studios.

I cannot recommend this place enough. Whether you are a student, graduate, professional or hobbyist, you will walk away with skills and knowledge that will take you places. My professional freelance work skyrocketed after I learned from these pros. The collective knowledge, creativity, energy and just downright coolness is infectious. It's not your average classroom. Apart from learning, you get to hang out and meet the brilliant minds behind the films you know and love.

Guest speakers every term come from all fields of the industry. We had people from Pixar, Dreamworks, Telltale games, and more. The talks were extremely informative and guiding. We were given hands-on brainstorm exercises to get a taste of working on-site on a tight deadline. Pictured above are the storyboards we had to create in 10 minutes, working collaboratively with [mostly] strangers.

Each week, our assignments pushed us out of our comfort zones. Things I always felt "I could never draw", I had to draw at least 10 of. Of course, it's extremely helpful to have Character Designers Chris Sasaki, Albert Lozano and Willie Real right there to help you and throw out some awesome ideas. I also took the Beginning and Intermediate Animation classes taught by Michael Chen and Jim Brown, respectively. I never knew much about 3D animation and still dream of finalizing my reel even if that's not my main career path right now. It opened my eyes to so many other aspects of the artistry involved in creating, planning and executing my work.

I enjoyed hanging out inside of Pixar Animation Studios. Got to see what the work areas were like and they're nothing short of amazing. I pranced around as a little Chun-Li and ate Cinnamon Toast Crunch in their Employee lunch room. Bahahaha! /embarrassed


Check this place out, you will NOT regret it. :)
