Ryan Stokes

Jacob Corder

"Sir Wade is phenomenal. Beginner or advanced, if you want to level up your knowledge of Maya and animation, this class is for you!"

Cam Doidge

"The course not only made animation in Maya more approachable but also gave me a bunch of other tools that I can utilize to make my ideas real. Loved it!"

Christopher Garcia

"A fun and workflow-changing experience that all must attend."

Sarabi Buesing

"I had a blast and enjoyed every second of it. This was worth every penny on the first day alone."

Dimath Kojitha

"This workshop will take your fear out of Maya."

Sarthak Khurana

"I learned more in a week than I did in 4 years. Examples on different topics, insights on how it applies in real life problems when working with a rig or for a studio, etc."

Amanda Burley

"I had been feeling stuck in a bit of an animation rut and just not feeling motivated to really do anything with it, but this helped energize me and give me some new ideas that make me want to get back into it regularly again."

Jeromy Ball

"I left the workshop with a greater understanding of both Maya the software and animation as a whole. Anyone seeking to increase their skills should definitely sign up the next time he offers this workshop."

Kadeem Heron

"I took this workshop as a refresher for the things I learned in college, but ended up learning more in a week than I did in 4 years."

Agustin Gonzales

"Sir Wade is an animation guru and a great instructor! I learned so much in such a short amount of time and I would definitely recommend for anyone new or looking to jump back into animation!"

Anonymous Student

"This workshop was a very valuable resource as someone who just graduated from college for animation. I learned settings and techniques in Maya that my school never taught me. I whole-heartedly recommend taking a workshop with Sir Wade."

Supplement Your Education 

Most universities and animation programs only scratch the surface of what you need to be hirable. Our curriculums are designed to cover more than any of these programs at a fraction of the cost, so you can save time and money while learning.
