“I first met Eddie in 2006 when we animated on one of our first shows together, Zeke’s Pad in Sydney. We sat next to each other for almost a whole year so we got to know each other well. Eddie is an outstanding animator and artist. He’s also very well natured and pretty much one of the most genuine and decent guys in the industry that I know. I’m absolutely honoured to be part of Griffin Animation Academy. I’m working in a technical support, modelling and rigging capacity at the school and have dabbled in particle effects too. I hope to also complete one of the animation creature courses too at some point in the next month or so so that I can pick at Eddie’s glorious pink brain matter. I would certainly recommend this school to anyone interested. Eddie will guide you well and push you to make something you would be very very proud of. Excited for the future!”
“When you are bettering yourself as an artist in any medium, there comes a point where your peers only know as much as you do, and can no longer give you critique to better your art. Finding a professional in the industry to critique you is essential to getting that first job. I started a wolf walk cycle with the intent of making it realistic. I reached out to Griffin Animation Academy and they immediately had notes to give. I felt like I was learning so much through different iterations and by the end, I had a very professional looking asset. My art continues to use the techniques that Eddie Chew gave me. After learning so much through Griffin Animation Academy, I went back and fixed up some earlier work of mine with the new knowledge I was given. I had been looking for a more stable job and was getting a lot of rejections, but promptly was offered a job within a short time after fixing my work. I can’t promise that you’ll find your dream job immediately after taking a course, but if you are looking to become an Animator in the industry, having professionals actively working in it is one of the best things you can do for your demo reel. Griffin Animation Academy is created to boost your skills and give you tools to better your eye. If you’re looking for a positive environment to get a trained, experienced animator’s eye to look at your work, Griffin Animation Academy is that and more. You will learn how to look at animation and become the animator you’ve always dreamed of being.”
“Eddie is extremely detailed, every frame has to be perfect. I did one shot with him and I learned a tonne. I am planning to do more once I get some free time. The webinars are very informative. One should definitely try those. I will recommend “Griffin academy” for individuals of any level. There is always something to improve.”
“When I wanted to challenge myself with animating a creature – I turned to Eddie and Griffin Animation Academy for help. It was personally a challenging piece of animation because it was very dynamic and also had some nuances to the performance that I wanted to bring out more than the reference. Eddie not only provided me with very detailed draw-overs but also recorded himself critiquing my work. This process allowed me not to miss a step. Griffin Animation Academy really helped hone my skills frame by frame with their professionalism and attention to detail. I highly recommend Eddie and Griffin Animation Academy to any Animator needing that extra help and push to creating an awesome shot for the reel!”
“Applying to Griffin Academy been the best decision of my career so far. It boosted my skill level in only 8 weeks and now I get to easily point out places where I need to improve and polish. Eddie is a great and fun instructor. At first, I thought I will have a hard time with communication and the project itself but I’m glad it turned out fun and a great learning experience. I’m very thankful to Griffin Animation Academy as it boosted not only my skills but also my confidence in the work that I do.”
“Hello. My name is Hakob Muradyan. I am from Armenia/Yerevan. I first fell in love with animation when I was 18 and since then I had a dream to work for animation studios like Disney, Dreamworks, Sony. If you are born in a small country like Armenia your chances to achieve those dreams are low. Then I heard about Griffin Animation academy which was a brand new academy for animators. I applied to learn there and now I realize that this was the best choice I’ve ever made in my career. I have learned more in 8 weeks at Griffin Animation Academy than the past 12 months trying to learn by myself. I’ve learned so much, thanks to my awesome mentor Eddie Chew. This academy is different. Here it’s not only about learning awesome things but motivation too. I gained so much knowledge and confidence that I started to believe in my dream again.I realize now that it’s not about the country you are born in, it’s about hard work, passion and confidence to never give up on your dreams. To conclude, here is my advice to you all– If you want to become an awesome animator, take part in incredible projects and fall in love with animation, then this is the place for you. “
