Here’s what we cover over the 5 weeks during the RIGGING course


Don’t just take our word for it! Here’s what some of our previous students have to say

In a short space of time I've gone from knowing practically nothing to being able to fully rig and animate within the software. Adam has been
nothing but open and friendly during his tuition, and has always been available to help with any issues I faced, making him a fantastic tutor. There's no way I would have been able to get the job on Disney's Tangled TV series without this course.

Tom Lavery

I've really enjoyed the course the video tutorials are excellent. Super clear, concise, easy to follow and the one-on-one tutorials are great.
It allows you to work at your own pace, I'd definitely recommend it!

Charlotte Kieran

Builds up to more advanced techniques in an easy to follow video format and practical examples. I loved the inclusion of extra tasks if you wanted to learn more.

Tomás Martin

Watching these tutorials has helped me pick up my skills in Toon Boom much quicker than any other method. The one-to-one feedback feature is great for
improving work and to discuss any queries I've had. I'm learnt lots and enjoyed the process.

His guidance and willingness to adapt to your direction is what makes the course truly unique and special.
