We use Discord to help us set up this forum.

We close our open enrollment one week before the start of a semester. Be sure to subscribe to the mailing list to get updates throughout each enrollment period.

Your weekly live session will run approximately 2-3 hours. Your weekly time commitment for assignments can be anywhere from 7-20 hours. Our mentorships are project-based, so you will ultimately decide how many hours to pour into each week’s deliverable. But plan on a minimum of 10 hours per week.

Yes! Many of our students have full-time jobs and we work around business hours (see time commitment question above). We only ask that you make your class work a priority.

Mentor’s availability varies for each semester and will be announced on each dedicated mentorship page. Our mentors are among the best artists in the industry and dedicated to dispensing the best learning experience to their students.

Weeknights or weekends. We understand that many of our students have 9-5 commitments, so live sessions are scheduled either after working hours or on the weekend. Your exact class time will be determined at the start of each semester, based on your mentor assignment.

We love our international student body and make every effort to accommodate across time zones. We realize that the time change issue is hard for many outside the US. We run class times on US Eastern Time Zone. We attempt to make every accommodation for our international students, but sometimes it means late nights or early mornings for those outside the US. We take this on a case by case basis and do our best to make it work.

We use a platform called Zoom for the live sessions. You will be on camera and will see a video feed of your peers and mentor. Live sessions are lecture-based but also contain organic Q&A where you can discuss specific workflow techniques or concepts with your mentor and classmates. Sessions typically run about 2-3 hours, so bring a drink, a snack, and a sketchbook to doodle and take notes.

We include demos and tutorials to support your learning experience. However, this mentorship is project-based and focus on your interactions with your mentor and classmates. Do not expect complete tutorials on how to use specific software. It is more about creating original portfolio pieces and learning the concepts, processes, and workflows of a professional motion designer.
