Attending NBCC was a very positive experience for me. The instructors were very talented and passionate about their work, which really helped shape the programs. I was offered an animation job straight out of college and I’ve been working in the industry for just over 15 years now. Since 2003 I’ve been the Animation Director, and one of the 4 founding partners of Copernicus Studios Inc. Our studio has had the pleasure of working with great clients such as New Line Cinema, Nickelodeon, Tenacious D, Weird Al Yankovic, Nelly Furtado, John K, WB and Cartoon Network.
