AnimSchool History, Instructors and Students
AnimSchool is an accredited (ACCSC) online school for learning 3D animation, modeling and rigging. We have demanding standards of progress so students are well prepared for the 3D workforce.
AnimSchool has over 30 instructors currently working at studios like Blue Sky Studios, Dreamworks, Disney, Sony, and Pixar. We share our passion with aspiring artists after our full-time production jobs. AnimSchool is a growing school!
AnimSchool students have many opportunities for interaction, help, and problem solving with our full-time pros-almost daily! We work hard to respond to student issues quickly.
AnimSchool is home to over 275 students in our two programs, where the students learn 3D animation, modeling, and rigging. They interact frequently in classes, extra sessions, a free drawing class with industry pros, a student web hangout, a very active student Facebook page, and messaging. Our students are excited about learning these 3D skills, so they approach each of their assignments with passion.
AnimSchool was founded in 2010 by David Gallagher, animator, rigger, and former Character Development Supervisor at Blue Sky Studios.
AnimSchool students learn to specialize in a particular field, while also learning supporting skills so students can become well prepared for the 3D workforce.
We love Characters!
AnimSchool provides appealing character rigs for animation students to use. AnimSchool characters are known around the world. We share some of our characters with the public.
Our Malcolm rig has been downloaded over 150,000 times worldwide and used in many student films, commercials, and animation contests.
And we teach studio-informed modeling and rigging practices so our students can compete as character artists with aesthetic and production-ready character models and rigs.
