Animated Video Production

3D Animation New York Film Academy

William Gadea 10.12.2009

I just finished teaching a 4-week intensive 3D animation workshop at the New York Film Academy. The students made a short film using Maya, After Effects, and Final Cut Pro. As a first-time teaching experience, it was certainly a jump into the deep-end of the pool. For the first two weeks I was in front of the class from 9AM to 5PM; any waking time spent not teaching was dedicated to prepping for the next day. The last two weeks eased off somewhat, as the students worked on their projects and I provided assistance and counsel, with an occasional review lecture thrown in. It was a demanding but very rewarding experience.

The above picture is graduation day.
