Griffin Animation Academy was founded in 2018 by Eddie Chew after over 15 years in the film animation industry. After landing several successful roles on major Hollywood films, Eddie began to understand the missing components many animators were lacking when they exited their VFX education programs and listened to their concerns about not having the precise skill sets needed to land those high end TV or Hollywood film jobs even after working in the industry for years.
With his tried and true industry experience, keen eye, advanced animation skills and desire to help fellow animators land their dream jobs, Eddie put together an intensive 15 week course. Soon after, Griffin Animation Academy was founded.
