The Animation Academy is a school I launched 25 years ago today.
On this day in the evening of January 19 in 1998 we had our first session in the back room of the Coral Cafe in Burbank California with 20 students. It was the flagship class of the Academy. I started the school with a small mailing list and $15 for stamps and envelopes to send flyers and enrollment forms. All available seating sold out.
Thank you to everyone who has ever been a part of this great experience. My affectionate gratitude for these past 25 years and what they have meant.
