  1. Rachel Webb (verified owner)

    This course was amazing! It goes through the process of three whole animations, and really breaks them down. It really helps with understanding how to tackle more complex animated scenes, and I can’t recommend it enough for helping to build confidence and skill when it comes to animating intricate scenes. It’s great!

  2. Erica Bey (verified owner)

    This course is excellent. I would highly recommend this one as a follow up to Aaron’s other animation courses. I love that he takes you through three different scenes/shots during this course.

    Aaron Blaise’s thought process for animating is very helpful, and fun to watch. This is a great course for anyone who has wanted to try their hand at a complicated scene but didn’t know where to start. Aaron will show you how. I can’t recommend this enough.
