There are no rules to methods of animating, but there are good practices.
What students say about our school
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.

My experience overall has been pretty good. In my experience with online education, a lot of the positive student interaction usually has more to do with the people in each group than the website itself, and the people I've met are really great which makes the whole experience much more enjoyable. Mike and Jalil also make sure to keep the group active and that's great.

Best I ever had!

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.

The class was very fun and entertaining, i like how it teaches and makes us push our timing to parts that we thought we wouldn't be able to do before and how to make those fast movements read well
