July 13 – Aug 10
Animation and Illustration are become more and more attractive to youth as a career path, but the number of quality post-secondary schools are few, and it’s getting more difficult for students to get in.
On the other hand, every year the schools always post super clear portfolio requirements on exactly what they want to see in your applications. I am a graduate of Classical Animation from Sheridan, and understand exactly what they are looking for in these portfolio requirements. I have mentored several students to prepare their portfolios, make sure theirs is hitting all the right marks, and correcting anything that shouldn’t be there.
I can’t do the work for you, but if you’re serious about building that winning portfolio, I can certainly help coach you along the way to get it where it needs to be.
This class will be very small, limited to only 8 students so we can have lots of screen sharing time and attention to individual learning.
*We will need a minimum number for the class to run. If a class is cancelled due to low enrolment, registrants will be given a full refund or credit to remain on file for future use.
**If you have any existing credit with us due to previously cancelled classes, you may use that credit towards this class. Please email the teacher to arrange; email@example.com
