Yuri is definitely one of the best animation mentors I've ever had. He is so friendly and eager to help. I love how well he breaks down examples during lectures so that they are easy to understand. He also has a HUGE library of references and examples to help teach you. He points out a lot of little things that my eyes might not have seen at first glance and he is able to point them out to me to give me that ah-ha! moment. His reviews are always awesome and he gives many great suggestions to help push your shot even further. Yuri is also very up to date on the latest tools and tricks and always takes his time to explain everything to you. There were many little tips and tricks that I learned from him that I have not seen anywhere else. I've learned so much, thank you!

The lecture was very thorough. The instructor critiqued, corrected and showed how to fix each pose, etc. for each student's submission. He spent a lot of time for each student. He also showed many reference animations from his own or from other animation movies. I have taken many animation classes at an art school in the past but in this mentorship course, I learned a lot more materials, actual techniques and tips used in the animation industries and animation principles.I was also a real beginner and it was intimidating to see other students doing a lot more advanced animation, but the class atmosphere was very encouraging and helpful. It was a great course! I wish I could spend more time on homeworks.

When the mentorship started, my animations were clunky/not appealing and with every new lesson, i started to understand which was my problem, things like timing, poses, anticipation, etc. Once that Yuri taught us those and more principles, was the moment i felt my animations started to improve, also Yuri is one of the best mentors ever, he is always willing to help you and that is the best part of this mentorship.
