"It was incredible! CTN should invite him back! I would recommend this to any animator regardless of their level."
"I think it was awesome. Mike has a amazing workflow thats close to mine, so i was able to take away lots of little gems to improve and get more efficient. Not to talk about all the performance info which was even more valuable to me. Its not just a insight into one of the best at Pixar, but also a deeper look at processes inside Pixar. I loved every minute of it."
"I really enjoyed it. Top notch instruction. Michel really knows what he's talking about. Even with my high expectations, I got a lot more out of it than I anticipated.."
"It was amazing, incredible, and totally unreal. This class in particular has already been getting rave reviews from people who originally took it back up in Emeryville as a 5 day class years ago. To say I finally took it and experienced it firsthand means so much to me it was impossible to get a good night’s rest that weekend. I could not contain my excitement at home and even during class.
The hype was real, even though Michal was not feeling well on the first day. The magic and charisma that Michal was known for kept us awake and fully engrossed into what he was bringing to the table. So much valuable information for animators who already know they want to stay in this competitive field. The class I would say is the cherry on top to everything that an advanced or even an intermediate level animator has already learned. Each person I know that has taken this class has exponentially moved up in the animation field and will always bring back what they learned from Michal no matter where they’re from and it’s that kind of magic from Michal that will forever be remembered.
I was able to meet and befriend a good hand of amazing animators, including meeting one of my mentors from Disney Animation Studios in person, who happened to already take the full week course years ago with Michal and wanted to see what was new. To his surprise there was still more things to learn and he was glad to have taken part as well.
I’m glad and forever thankful that CTN has been generous enough to bring him down here not just for this masterclass but for the CTN talks as well."

It also includes 3 LIVE demonstrations in Autodesk Maya of the Bouncing Ball, Complex Physical Shot, Performance Acting Shot and industry-proven techniques for handling both common and unusual animation challenges.
