How to Become a Professional Animator

How can YOU reach your Dream Job?

You’re not just a dreamer. You CAN reach your dream job!

I was just 13 years old when I first saw Jurassic Park in the cinema. I instantly knew that I wanted to create those kind of visuals.

When I finally got a copy of the animation software I needed, it only ran in DOS (before Windows), and there was NO help file or website I could turn to for direction. I had to learn by trial and error, locked in my bedroom for the next 2 years.

  • By age 15:

    I began animating logos and characters professionally.

  • By age 18

    I was hired to animate Dinosaurs for the Australian Museum in Sydney.

  • By age 22:

    I landed my Dream Job as an Animator for Walt Disney Animation!

It Doesn’t Have to Be So Hard.

You don’t have to struggle and teach yourself the way I did.

There are so many resources online to learn animation software, techniques, workflows… It seems endless!

But I like to get back to the basics:
What is it that sets one person apart from the others?
Why do some people succeed and others fail?
How can YOU stand out and succeed despite stiff competition?

You’re in luck, because that’s why I’ve built this course!

This course is going to be released in August 2015.

The retail price will be $300. However, right now I want to offer it to anyone with a dream for just $97!

Just as any athlete would train for his sport, we as animators need to train for our art. This training is not done in large leaps or big projects. They are simple, seemingly repetitive exercises done on a regular basis.

Guardian Training Program is an animation training course that has been designed by an 18 year animation veteran.

Every day for the next 3 months, you will receive a short 2-5 minute video with a simple animation exercise to be done each day.

Every exercise is based on and increases your grasp of the 12 Principles of Animation. At the same time they rotate between your various Capacities and cycle them between nutrition (education), stress, and rest.

This system is a complete training program to progressively increase both your animation Ability and your animation Capacity.

This is NOT a magic pill. No progress comes without dedication. This program is firm, expert guidance. This program requires hard work and effort on YOUR part.

If you follow these exercises and do them every day for the next 3 months, we guarantee you will see drastic improvements in your animation ability and capacity! Not to mention an overall feeling of confidence.

I’m offering the entire Guardian Animation Training Program to anyone who is willing to donate to the maintenance of this animation community.

That’s right. You get the entire 3 month program just for making a donation!
