An incredible course of animātiō("a bestowing of life")!!
When I first started the course, I knew this class is going to be different. The responsibility, time, effort, patience, energy and life Yuri put into the course and to his student are something I've barely seen anywhere else before. Every notes, lectures, and ideas he mentioned in class has very concise reasons which is easy to follow and apply it to my existing animation workflow&ideology. I have the opportunity in this course to apply what I learnt from doing the blocking of shot 1 directly into shot 2, which is AWESOME. It's also not only just for one animators specifically, we all progress together as a whole and learnt so much from each other's industry experience, shots and life in general. Overall, this is a course that will make you fall in love with animating and will surly bring people joy seeing their shots become so much better because of Yuri's amazing input every week.
