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

Mentor’s availability varies for each session and will be announced on each dedicated class pages. Our mentors are among the best artists in the industry and dedicated to dispense the best learning experience to their students.

Week nights 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 accomodate 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 to 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 have designed these classes in a specific order, to cover the most essential concepts first, and then to build on those. If you have previously studied motion media at an accredited institution, we will consider moving you directly into class 2 or 3. We strongly suggest taking the classes in order. Please contact us at [email protected] to review your portfolio.

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. You will present your progress for the week and receive critique from your mentor and peers. Live sessions 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 program 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.
