By teaching at SVA, I get to share all that Hollywood knowledge with my students, and apply it to every animation film project that goes through my class—from sellable logline and amazing story to Hollywood-worthy script and breathtaking storyboards to pitches that take agents and film producers by storm.
Although I love the big studio films, I am equally passionate about independent animation films. So I encourage my students to find their true voice as animation storytellers, from the loveable optimist to the darkest rebel. From classical to cutting-edge, I want my students to develop the strongest, clearest and most captivating stories.
