The best tutorials ever! I never expected that maya tutorials could be this clear, this inspiring, this creative, this fun and informative.  While I am having fun and feeling awe, watching tutorials, I am learning so much. It’s impossible not to learn, improve and be inspired. The tutorials make me feel that maya is not so difficult, perhaps even easy.



As a hobbyist filmmaker wanting to understand the various elements this course was exactly what I was looking for. It’s short, sweet and to the point with the aid of a first-class teacher at the price of a large coffee once a month. Even veterans in the field could learn a thing or two for Andrew’s tips and tricks that he sprinkles throughout the videos.


These videos are very clear to a beginner like myself. I am comfortable with Maya but this site helps me take it to another level. I enjoy Andrew’s method of blocking characters and no-nonsense rigging techniques. In this new world of character production you have to be very fast and very good; these classes will get you there.
