We are pleased to be opening a new satellite Animation School in downtown Crown Point, Indiana!
Disney Veteran Greg Manwaring (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0544337/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 ) will personally conduct the classes, teaching the same hand-drawn (2D) curriculum that he developed (over the past 3 years) and is currently teaching for his students at Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles, California.a
Classes at the Tinseltown Animation School will be limited to 10 students per course so that there is in-depth one-on-one training with Greg.
The three month courses are:
- The Essential Basics of Animation
Learning the 12 core principles of animation, while improving your basic
drawing skills and design sense. Making things move!
- Intermediate Skill Development
Learning to Act, design characters, giving weight to characters, defying
gravity, understanding physics with character locomotion. Giving life to
- Advanced Concepts and Skills
Acting exercises with characters (one, two, multiple). Getting real world
skills that can get you hired.
*Please note: There will also be many lectures, both in-house and over zoom, with top industry professionals!
After completing the three courses our Tinseltown Animation School students will NOT receive a 'Degree', as they would after completing 4 years at a major university (where they will have spent between $120,000 - $300,000). What they will get are a special set of skills that will allow them to pursue making their own films/shows, or have a solid chance of getting their 'foot in the door' on a major film production. At the end of the day, no one will get a job in the Animation industry because they possess an 'Animation Degree' - you are either competent or not - and your work will speak for itself!
The Courses will be broken into three yearly semesters:
Winter: January - March
Spring: April - June
Fall: September - November
Classes will be held in Crown Point at 415 S. Court Street (CP Coworking offices) on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:00pm - 9:00pm. (this might be adjusted to compensate for students needs)
Cost of Course per Semester is $1,500 (which breaks down to $500 per month)
[Note: $17,500 - $20,000 per Semester is the average cost at big name schools like CalArts, USC, Savannah, and Otis]
We are now taking applications for the first class which will run for a month starting on November 13, 2023 and will run through December 06, 2023! Applications are also be accepted for Winter semester 2024, beginning in January 2024.
