What the artists say

Daniel Zettl – Senior animator at Moon Studio

“In this high-end animation course Pierrick teaches you how to craft frame-by-frame physicality through understanding force and posing. A killer Blender-workflow with hotkeys, editors and tools will make you comfy in Blender and push beginners as well as veterans to 110% craft wise. A masterful one-stop-shop for every power animator.”

Richard Lico – Animation director at Polyarc

“Pierrick does such an incredible job explaining animation, and especially space switching! His clarity of explanation is unrivaled. Things like the difference between local and world space is crystal clear. His visuals are also clean and extremely easy to understand. The later courses go into critical depth on much of the animation process where he manages to maintain his clarity despite the complexity of the topic. I can’t recommend his course enough! If you’re a blender animator, there’s plenty for you here!” 

Zacharias Reinhardt – Founder and lead instructor at CGBoost

“This is one of the best Blender courses I have watched so far – period. Both, the way Pierrick is conveying the info, and how he presents it in nicely edited videos, is just perfect to understand the complex topic of animation. He is starting with the very basics and step-by-step guides us into learning how to create complex character animations. I really like the great practical examples, and that he is not only focusing on the technical aspect, but also how to study reference material and how to make the animations look and feel appealing. Pierrick really knows his craft, and how to pass his knowledge over to us. If you want to get into animation, this is the only course you will ever need. This is a true masterpiece – highly recommended!”

Todor Nikolov – https://cgdive.com/

“Pierrick has done it again. After creating the definitive guide to Rigging, he’s now tackled Animation in Blender like nobody else.”

Fin’ O’Riordan – Blender alchemist

“A real zero to hero course… Pierrick covers everything from basic tools to advanced techniques….”

Petar Markovich – Ubisoft – Senior Gameplay Programmer

“I’ve picked up so many helpful techniques and best practices from Pierrick’s Blender course”

  • Best Quality Animation Course I Have Taken

    The best animation course I have taken for beginning animation. Along with the quality, in-depth, and well thought out instruction, I would recommend this course to anyone who is frustrated with not being able to follow along with a tutorial because of the low quality of the tutorial visuals. This course has the best clarity and size of teaching interface I have ever seen. This makes following along with the instruction easy as there is no guessing as to what buttons and sliders are being used. Thank you Pierrick!
