Online animation school Animation Mentor has released the latest edition of its global showcase of work by its animation students. This year’s theme “Power of Inspiration” focuses on inspiration, including its many sources and collective ability to spark creativity and evoke emotion in others. These students have embraced and channeled their passions squarely into their animation — and together, they embody the Power of Inspiration.
Showcase is a well-respected honor for Animation Mentor students. In addition, studios highly anticipate the Showcase release because it has proven to be an annual and trusted source of new talent. Many graduates have used their Showcase recognition as a springboard to work on a range of feature films, television, and video games.
“We started the school because we wanted to teach animation the way we would want to learn,” says Bobby Beck, Animation Mentor’s CEO and cofounder. “So it is incredibly rewarding to watch our passion for animation and education come together for our students. I love watching them progress from our workshops to our Character Animation Program and even [to] our [Animals & Creatures:] Master Class! Seeing the best work in Showcase reminds us that we are really helping our students pursue their dreams. It inspires me!”
Animation Mentor is also hosting a special contest where students can become eligible to win reduced tuition into either the Character Animation Program or Animals & Creatures: Master Class. To enter, students must submit an essay of no more than 150 words and compellingly explain why they deserve to win and why they are passionate about animation.
