The Reel is up!

As you can see above, I've finally posted what I hope to be a strong reel. All this work wouldn't have been possible without Animation Mentor. They are awesome. I loved my mentors, I learned so much, and I know HOW to keep learning and pushing thanks to them.

My classmates were awesome in Class 6, here's a snapshot of a few of us chatting through AM's new vidchat feature! Just click on the thumbnail.


Anyways, I want to also list my mentors in thanks:

Anthony Wong
Dimos Vrysellas
Jay Jackson
Brett Coderre
Ethan Hurd

Thanks to them for passing on their knowledge and wisdom. If you've ever thought about enrolling in AM, just commit and go for it. Be passionate and love it!
