There are no rules to methods of animating, but there are good practices.
What students say about our school
Overall it's been a mind blowing and eye opening experience. Its made clear concepts that I hadn't quite understood prior to CGTarian. Definitely looking forward to taking more courses in the future and I highly recommend it to other animation scholars.

It was great! I learn from my instructor and from my fellow students. I will definitely attend more courses at CGTarian and I can recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their animation.
Pavel Antonenkov (Moscow, Russian Federation)
I have been blessed to be a part of many workshops, and I can honestly say that there is no workshop quite like this one. I have learned so much in such a short amount of time, that I always eagerly encourage my peers at my university to partake in these classes.
Christopher Harada (San Francisco, United States)
Instructors and reviewers are all excellent.
A wonderful, fun experience.

I have bounced around between a few online programs. In terms of learning structure I think Cgtarian is my favorite so far. I really love the specific lectures that coincide directly with the shot you are working on- it helps you to make decisions on your own as you work and helps you avoid mistakes before you make them. That way the instructor at the end of the week can be confident in your understanding of the critique because the content has been covered. It also helps so you know not only the changes you need to make but why you are making them.
