SHARING THEIR EXPERIENCE

Following a workshop at Griffin with Eddie as a mentor has radically changed me in many ways as an animator, artist and human ! No one has given me the time and pushed me as far into my work as Eddie has done, we can say he's a real perfectionist! I can say that polishing my animation is something that I've learned at Griffin and god knows how much polishing your animation is important for a Demo Reel if you which to apply to any studio. My journey at Griffin will certainly change my life in the near future and help me reach my ultimate goal. I will forever be grateful for the knowledge I gained, and it has definitely motivated me to take another one at Griffin !

"From the first lesson, Eddie’s emphasis on thorough research, dynamic shot construction and cinematic action pushed my skills beyond what I had accomplished in the past. It was my first time attempting quadruped animation, but the challenge was incredibly rewarding and Eddie’s precise feedback and knowledge of quadruped locomotion carried me through!
