The AMP Studio Production Pipeline and the Studio Learning Platform

Animation Mentor was the first to bring animation education online. Today, the
school brings the first fully distributed production pipeline within a studio
school setting online. Starting with the Spring 2013 term, Animation Mentor
students will train on a professional production pipeline similar to those
used by studios worldwide. At the heart of this new instructional design is
the state-of-the-art, patent-pending AMP studio production pipeline.

The AMP pipeline is a professional-grade distributed asset and shot management
tool that allows students to collaborate with other Animation Mentor students
around the globe to produce finished films and sequences under the direction
of their mentor. The education takes place on the school's Studio Learning
Platform — a series of proprietary tools that work together to provide
students with the real experience of working on a studio production.

Animation Fundamentals and Production Tracks

Students enroll in Animation Fundamentals, a series of four classes that
introduces them to the basics of production animation. Once completed,
students can then continue their education and enroll in two new advanced
disciplines — the Character Animation Production Track and the Animal and
Creature Animation Production Track — to develop the professional-level
production experience that prepares them to excel in the industry workforce.

VFX Fundamentals and Production Tracks

VFX Fundamentals — comprised of three classes and developed with major studio
partners to meet industry production needs — are designed to teach production
CG, look development, lighting, and compositing basics. The new offerings
begin with the Summer 2013 term, with CG- and VFX-specific production tracks
available in 2014.

Industry Partners

Industry professional lighters and compositors from major studios and
production houses — including Pixar Animation Studios, DreamWorks Animation,
Weta Digital, and Industrial Light & Magic — have worked closely with
Animation Mentor on the VFX curriculum. Animation Mentor has also partnered
with leading software developers (Autodesk, Inc., The Foundry, and Solid
Angle), character riggers (CG Monks), and VFX media partners (fxphd).

Lower Tuition, Shorter Program Length, and Additional Learning Tools

Animation Mentor offers reduced pricing and shorter program lengths (formerly
six classes, now four) to provide students with better access and options. The
school further offers new intermediate characters starting in the Spring 2013
term, a new advanced character in the Fall 2013 term, a simplified grading
system, new loan options, and monthly payment plans.

About Animation Mentor

Animation Mentor is an online school focused on animation and VFX classes
taught by industry professionals within the first fully distributed production
pipeline of a studio school. The programs and curriculum teach the exact skill
set that film, animation, and visual effects studios seek — the ability to
professionally collaborate and apply studio best practice workflows within a
studio production pipeline and across multiple disciplines — and do so in a
customized, affordable, and quick fashion. Students work collaboratively on an
online production and leverage the full capability of the state-of-the-art,
patent-pending AMP studio production pipeline. For more information, please
