Student experiences from our animation courses:
I put my reel out on a Friday - Wednesday I got a Job
I put my reel out on a Friday and I got an email on Monday for a Wednesday interview.
Wednesday I got the job. And that's my story.
I got hired as a junior 3D animator!
The biggest result [from Augmented] is that I would get companies coming to me. And being like "hey we have a position would you be interested in it?" or if I applied they're like "yeah, come in for an interview"
It got me from no one - to hearing from a whole ton of people. And then I got hired as a junior 3D Animator!
you also get so much more intimacy with your peers compared to...
If you're interested in learning about animation and your worried about tuition fees or other universities I would absolutely consider taking Augmented Animator on.
It's only a fraction of the cost you also get so much more intimacy with your peers compared to if you were to do it in an institution.
I am so much happier now that I feel like I’m constantly progressing
If [animation] is what you want to do – just go for it. There’s no time like the present. And your not actually going to get any closer unless you start walking towards that.
That took me a LONG time to deal with. And I am so much happier now that I feel like I’m constantly progressing.
I think it was Neil Gaiman who said, “your goal should be like a mountain off in the distance and anytime your walking to closer to that mountain is a good sign.” And this class definitely helped me walk closer to that mountain.
I did learn a lot from this class. And the feedback you gave was really good..
I did learn a lot from this class. And the feedback you gave was really good...I like your style, and your feedback really makes me think that you really care about each student. I was a mentor for like Chinese online animation school as well for a little while so I understand it's not easy. Yeah your notes were really good, you really spent time..
Understanding Weight was my biggest breakthrough
After graduating school I realized one of my biggest struggles was selling weight.
Then in Rusty Animator School understanding weight was probably my biggest breakthrough. It definitely helped a TON. WAY more than I could have done on my own.
I learned so much more than what I expected
I learned so much more than what I expected, stuff that I didn't imagine I would in the first place. It was a really cool course…Even though I had my doubts whether the brainstorming was going to work like it should, I suddenly came up with a lot of different ideas, so that for me was a big break, because I found out that I'm creative...
You have probably been my biggest inspiration...
You seemed really humble, like really wanting to help everyone out. Really wanting to take on that mentor role. Like let me help guide you on this path.
It was wonderful. You have probably been my biggest inspiration so far in helping me move forward as an animator.
