We have a range of quick work-outs to regularly strengthen those animation muscles and longer monthly challenges to build your reel.
We list open job vacancies, host a showreel gallery and "e-pitches" so you can present yourself to studios with a short video.
"Animation is a lot like boxing: working hard and training daily pays off in the end. It doesn’t matter how long you spent on one shot animating it to perfection, because that doesn’t reflect the true nature of the industry. At AnimDojo we apply the same approach to our workouts to help get people on the road to becoming the best.”
"Metaphorically, we don't want to teach you how to fish, we want to help you practise finding the easy to catch fish. By utilising cognitive psychology research we've developed a programme which will allow animators to improve very efficiently."
"Our ambition is through intense training and exercises, give budding animators the knowhow and shortcuts that you only ordinarily get through years of industry experience. With the aim of AnimDojo animators being instantly employable and prefered by the industry."
"Dividing the [animation process] work in a list of reliable steps gives me more control of the whole process, I can identify more easily which things are not working and why... I am able to work in a more agile, wiser way."
- Julia Millan, AnimDojo Tester
AnimDojo is completely free apart from livestreams & tutorial videos which are limited to premium users (costing just £15 a month) but we have made everything free until July 2020 to help people in COVID-19 lockdown.
We have based AnimDojo on how gyms work; so you can work at your own pace and jump in when you have spare time.
The only time limited parts of the website are to attend live workout sessions or participate in monthly challenges.
We do regular "Feedback Friday" sessions where a professional will livestream a critique of the work that has been uploaded to the website that week. We will soon be offering additional one-on-one portfolio reviews.
No, AnimDojo's core mission is for everyone to get a chance to achieve their dream job, regardless of their background.
