The Animation Academy - Special Projects Program

Hello everyone especially to those of you who've been following the Academy's blog. We've been utilizing Blogger since April 2006. That's well over 9 years. So much has happened with many talented individuals having passed through our experience along with much history even before the blog started and with many new and interesting students still coming to us.

I'm happy to take this opportunity to introduce something new that we'll be initiating at the school.

We're launching a Special Projects aspect to our program that will enable qualified students to move ahead into character based intellectual property development centered upon creative projects originating from the Academy and a group of highly skilled and highly experienced industry professionals who will be supervising each project. The goal of which will be to advance these projects towards crowdfunding and subsequently into production.

Special Projects is in the works and on the way! This will create many new opportunities for our students as well as provide an outlet for all the amazing things that go on here creatively. We're a very unique community and this will help us share our innovative approach for education and vocational training in animation far beyond what we've been able to do so far.

Thank you for checking in with us! Updates to follow. Meanwhile you know what we say around here... Keep Creating !!!

Project A / BC - The Animation Academy & Worthing Boys Club


We're collaborating with The Worthing Boys Club in West Sussex UK on a fund raising campaign! Three original drawings of the iconic video game character I developed Crash Bandicoot are being auctioned on eBay. The first auction wrapped up a few days ago and was very successful. The second auction is currently in progress until March 24 2015.


The third auction will follow soon. This is a great opportunity to help both the Academy in Burbank and a fine institution in England that's been around since 1936. Plus add to your collection of original character based art.

There's a story behind the drawings that are being auctioned. They spent more than 3 months in Brazil before they finally got to the UK. We thought they were lost in the mail forever but as it turned out, there was a happy ending after all.

Thanks for checking in and feel free to participate in these auctions and help to spread the word.
