3D Animation Team
Although everyone on our team knows the basics of Maya, each 3D mentor also has their very own specialty that may include zBrush, Cinema 4D, After Effects, Unity, Rhino, 3D Printing, Revit, Motion Graphics, Programming, Bone-based Character Rigging, etc. Most of our team resides in Brown 205, but you may occasionally find them wandering off into 204.
Stop Motion Team
Our stop motion team is an extremely creative group. Through innovative thinking, this stop motion team uses materials around them to hand build their own world. They know the ins and outs of Dragon Frame, set building, character animation, puppet building, paper cut outs, and more! They move around the most between Fox 214 and Brown 212.

2D Animation Team
Our 2D animation team knows exactly how it feels to create hundreds of drawings in one sitting. Their experience with traditional animation combined with varying knowledge in programs such as After Effects, Photoshop, TVPaint, Premiere, and Flash has prepared them to help you with 2D animation when you need it most. In addition, their differing passions for color theory, storyboarding, character animation, and character design have equipped them with tips and tricks to help you make something great.
