Okay, I feel just a little embarrassed.
In the last post, I ended with a teaser about a possible teaching opportunity, saying that I would share "more on that later." I guess that I got so wrapped up in actually doing it that I forgot to come back later and write about it.
In early April, I began teaching the inaugural Intro to Maya class with AnimSchool. I was approached about the opportunity by my friend Tony Bonilla, who works as the curriculum manager for AnimSchool in addition to teaching several classes. It didn't take much prodding for Tony to convince me that this could be a fun opportunity, so I took the plunge. As of this writing, the term is nearly over, and I can definitely say that it's been a great experience, and I'm looking forward to the next term, which kicks off in July.
One of the perks that the students get at AnimSchool is a full recording of every live class lecture. Little did I know that Tony and friends would take one of these lectures and turn it into a short promo video for the course. I guess I should have seen it coming. ;)
