Guest Speaking and Lecturing


 UDEM, Monterrey, Mexico, 2014

I would be happy to visit your college, school, studio, convention, or film festival as a guest speaker, guest lecturer, or guest jurist. I have 12 years of teaching, training, and speaking experience. I can cover every aspect of of Maya, After Effects, Nuke, and Fusion. (I’m an Autodesk Certified Instructor, I’ve recorded After Effects and Fusion videos for, and I’ve created training videos for The Foundry.) Plus, I have a deep knowledge of film production, visual effects, feature animation, and the film festival circuit. My rates are reasonable and sometimes only require the coverage of travel expenses. Drop me a line on my contact page.

For a list of books I’ve written, visit the Books menu at the top of this site. For a list of schools I’ve taught at, check out my CV under the About menu.
