I have had the pleasure of taking several classes from Gil; Illustrator, Advanced Photoshop, 3D Modeling to name a few. As an older student in classrooms full of younger students, I can certainly recommend Gil's ability to teach any age group. He has the patience to walk students through techniques and procedures despite any lack of skill. At the same time, he is quick to challenge those students who skillfully grasp concepts and are ready to move on. The atmosphere he provides is warm and encouraging. There are so many techniques I am continue to use thanks to Gil's instruction!

During my time at Norco College, I had the pleasure of taking quite a few classes with Gil. I'm not know to be the best kind of student, I don't do well in classroom structures, but Gil's class was one of the few I was able to stay focused and do well in.

He has a great way of teaching that actually allows you to learn and have fun at the same time. He knows what he is doing and that shows, plus instead of just telling us to read this chapter or go to this page and follow the instructions, he will be more hands on and show us what to do and where to go and he did his best to help each student individually and help push their limits to make some amazing pieces of work.

I've learned a lot and still use a lot of the techniques from those classes, definitely the best teacher I ever had to date. So take it from me, if you get the chance to ever have Gil as a teacher, don't pass it up.

I have actually taken quite a few classes that were taught by Gil. I always have found him to be a super helpful teacher and always looked forward to going to his classes because the atmosphere always felt really warm to me, especially compared to a lot of other classes I have taken; he really wants to help students learn. I really like his teaching techniques, which involves more teaching from experience than “here have a book follow these step-by-step instructions.” Everything I have taken away from Gil’s classes has helped me become much more efficient, as well as a better artist. I’d recommend him as a teacher to anyone.

I have worked in the animation industry for over 20 years. With experience in 2D traditional animation, I have been teaching computer animation for 12 years. I taught over one hundred talented Artists at the Walt Disney Animation Studio in Burbank, mainly Maya, some proprietary software and Harmony.

Where most of my classes were taught to groups, I have also taught customized one-on-one classes to Visual development Artists, Art Directors, Animators, Directors, Story Artists, etc. I can teach you the fundamentals of 3D animation and what to expect in the animation industry, from my experience at one of the most high profile company in the industry. I can't wait to share my expertise. Here's what I can teach:

-Fundamentals of 3D
-Basic Modeling
-Basic to advanced Animation (Editing with curves)
-Basic character rigging
-Basic materials and shading
-Rendering
-Animation production pipeline (The making of a animated film, from Visual development to compositing and lighting)

I have a BS in Media Arts and Animation and studied at the Art Institute. I can probably help you in really making that school animation project pop using the 12 principles of animation. Don't know what those are? Well, let's talk about that, because you need those!
