Student Testimonials

"I improved a lot"

by Mike M.

I improved a lot and I feel like at least my first passes on things are faster and farther along now. Even stuff I learned before makes more sense now and I think I've been able to better apply it all to my animation. The instruction throughout has also been great [which is] hard to find in this level of quality.

"...the process became more joyful."

Anna P.

Prior to starting the program I didn't have any idea of what does animation look like from the inside... On the final challenge something clicked and I my focus shifted from battling maya to really thinking about the mechanics, ideas and I the process became more joyful. I think it would take me months and a lot of self-discipline and effort to overcome this if I hadn't taken this course. Having methodical and structured approach, pace and achievable milestones created opportunity for this substantial change.

"Somehow You Didn't Lose That"

David E.

"I really like your videos, they're really professional and clean. I know, like a lot of other tutorials that I take it feels like they forgot what it's like to be a novice or someone who's new to something. And I don't know, somehow you didn't lose that."

"Your Videos Are Great."

Dale C.

"Your video [lessons] are great. I'm just like smiling through them all like finally someone that is like in my head."

"Highly recommend Lucas!"

Chris P.

I have taken many courses over my 31+ professional years, both in person and online, as well as teaching since ’94. I am always curious what other people have to say and how they teach as you can learn so much. Lucas just has it, plain and simple. He is so much wiser than his years. Highly recommend Lucas! Great job!

"This course..."

Laura A.

"This course is worth every Euro I pay, really." In a community post she recently shared: "This course is changing my observation skills!"

"Thank you!"

Lauren S.

"Loving the meme's and the depth of the course and advice! You really invested a lot into making this and thinking of the students. Thank you!"

"I've learned so much..."

Michael P.

I've learned so much, I think you have a different perspective of animation than I've seen before from a lot of people, and I think it's awesome.
