computer graphics MENTORING
Live your dream
Create things that matter
Ever worked a crappy job?
You know the kind I'm talking about... you make enough money to live but it's not anything to brag about at a party.
I created CG Mentoring to allow you to achieve a dream career creating art with technology.
I've worked with countless incredible artists and computer scientists who much like you, are eager to create something and be proud of it.
I've lost count how many students I've mentored and professionals I've had the chance to be mentored by over the past decade since starting my career in animation.
Working on stuff you aren't proud of sucks.
What if you could create something you're truly proud of and get paid for it?
Some people get stuck paying for school that don't get them to where they want to be.
I can't tell you how many people who graduate from animation school and are jobless with $50-100,000 worth of debt.
This entire program is designed so that each week you are doing things that GUARANTEE you'll have a job by the end. I'm not kidding when I say that.
You know there's a problem when there are schools out there who are willing to take $80,000 from you and then not guarantee a placement at a prestigious animation studio 2 or 4 years later.
What if there was a way to get an education at the same time as work on professional level projects?
Now there is.
By the end of CG Mentoring you'll have so many connections within the industry and such a solid portfolio of professional work you'll be able to choose where you want to work and what projects you want to work on.
Typical animation schools will teach you fundamentals and give you the assignment to work on.
When you start at an animation studio on an internship you work on real projects and learn exponentially faster than you do in a typical school setting.
The first internship I worked on a cinematic for a futuristic race car.
The second internship I had the chance to work on the Disney Infinity Star Wars Episode 7 video game.
The third internship I worked on the animated film, The Peanuts Movie.
If you want to work on projects like this you first have to have done something, you have to have proved yourself somehow.
But even after all this will it be worth it?
I've worked with so many people who at the end of the day simply don't live a fulfilled life. My job is to teach you the science of success and the art of fulfillment within the world of computer graphics.
Imagine life is just a game and you have a role to play. I know my role. Let's find yours.
CG Mentoring takes principles from education and gaming and creates true learning. You will be assigned a role on a team. It's your job to fulfill that role each day.
You'll be able to start out learning massive amounts through applying it to real, meaningful work. The kind of work that will impact humanity.
You'll be able to get your hands on actual projects for actual companies with intentions to create a sustainable future.
When you start at a company usually after a week of training they start you out working on real projects.
The amount of learning in school or even from an online animation course is not as much learning as you get when you're in a studio working.
So why not start right away?
You will pay to get mentored and get projects to work on. Instead of paying to go to school, there's a 75% chance you won't end up working in the field you went to school for by the time you graduate, there might not even be jobs available.
With this course, I'm going to launch your career in animation like a rocket into outer space. You'll be able to get hands-on immediately and produce a demo reel that will get you landed at studios around the world.
My CG Mentoring will open up doors that were not previously possible in your life.
What do you need?
All you need is a decent laptop — no excuses — an amazing attitude — and a burning desire to hit your goals.
If you want something, don't let anything get in your way of getting it. CG Mentoring is designed from the ground up to allow you to fully get what you want out of your career in animation.
I've created a space in Virtual Reality that allows you to connect with fellow classmates — your peers — this will become your team and together you will solve difficult challenges and learn the ins and outs of working within animation, games, visual effects, and VR.
