Terminology

Storyboarding with SketchUp

Super detailed, fast paced.

We hate long, dragged-out tutorials. We believe in bite-sized lessons with a clear structure that get straight to the point without skipping any important information. We’ll take you step-by-step through the program’s learning curve.

Animation training can get expensive.

Animation courses can be pricey, often in the thousands of dollars. These programs cover entire skill sets, including many topics you'll probably never use. Our courses are just the right size and very cost-effective, teaching exactly what you need to know to start animating right away.
