Live Webinar: Choosing the Best Program in Digital Entertainment


Welcome, animation enthusiasts! Today's webinar marks the commencement of an exciting journey into the realm of animation at Vanessa Animation School (VANAS). I am Kelvin Luk, your host and the Head of Faculty at VANAS. With over a decade of teaching experience in computer animation and a professional background spanning two decades, I am thrilled to guide you through this immersive experience.

My Animation Odyssey:

Let's dive into a bit of my background. I began my journey in animation fueled by a passion for art, drawing, and films. Over the years, my career took me across various regions, from Ottawa to Montreal, California to London, and even Munich in Germany. I've had the privilege of contributing to iconic projects like "The Raccoons," "Alvin and the Chipmunks," and "Who Framed Roger Rabbit." My transition into computer animation at Disney marked a significant shift, and today, I bring that wealth of experience to the classrooms at VANAS.
