(lesson 1: The essential basics)
Elliot M. Bour
Director, Disney Toon Studios
Stephen Anderson, director of "Meet the Robinsons" and "Winnie the Pooh" (2011), said this about Scott's training DVDs... "Hand drawn animation may look easy from the outside but it's filled with complex principles that initially can seem intimidating. But after watching "Animation & Drawing Excellence," you'll see that there's nothing to fear. Scott breaks down the fundamentals with simple language and clear examples. He then boosts the viewers' confidence with his positive nature and true passion for the art and craft of animation. I highly recommend "Animation & Drawing Excellence!"
Some more endorsements:
Disney's supervising animator, T Dan Hofstedt - "I enjoyed watching Scott's Animation & Drawing Excellence DVD very much. It was refreshing to see the hand-drawn craftmanship of classical 2D animation demonstrated and explained in a clear and professional manner. Scott is doing a terrific job of keeping the 2D techniques alive and well into the next generation. His talent for drawing and animating are certainly world class, but add to that his ability to teach and communicate and you have an awesome winning combination."
" Scott's Animation Training series is a very effective way of learning animation. Once I started to watch it I was surprised at how good it was, and I couldn't stop watching until it was over. If I was a beginning animation student I would get these and learn from them as much as I could." - Floyd Norman, Disney Legend and Story artist.
