I teach about different types of animation,. I can do lessons on Claymation, Traditional 2D Cartoon Animation, Rotoscoping, Stop-Motion Animation, etc.

2D Cartoon Animation:
Learn the basic principles of 2D Cartoon Animation and the application of those principles in bringing a character to life through the mechanics of motion. Learn how to draw characters and create a walking animation(s) with the help of movement guides.

StopMotion / Claymation:
Students learn to explore the hands-on process of Stop-Motion through setting up characters and sets, using LEGO®s, Clay, and other materials. They would be taking the digital snapshots and putting together/editing their film via computer or Smartphone.

Eric has experience with map animation that gives him insight into how to help me with my particular project and the specific help with animation that I need.
Rachael O.
My son is dyslexic and Eric is so patient with him. He's learning things I never thought would be possible and enjoying everything about his time with Eric! As a parent, working with Eric is very easy. He cares about his students and really wants them to enjoy their time with him. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a teacher/ tutor!
JeM
Eric was helpful. I had a quick intro in to what I needed to know for my project and what tools would be most useful.

It would have been ideal, if I had known ahead of time that he was not well-versed on all features of Adobe Creative Cloud, but at least I know what is possible with his expertise.

Otherwise Eric conveyed a professional competence and was easy to talk to.

I can teach a broad range of disciplines including handdrawn 2D, digital 2D, 3D, stopmotion, and others. If you're merely interested in the design aspects, that's fine, too. I have a comprehensive knowledge of 3D techniques and digital art workflows, and I can tailor the course to meet those needs, as well.
