Who will be teaching?

My name is Danila, and animation has always been my hobby since very childhood.

I started making my first cartoons when I was 12 years old. I started my way with Macromedia Flash MX, then switched to After Effects, became a freelancer, but after a few years of creating commercials, I realized that I was not interested in it anymore. I decided to forget about cut-out animation and go deep into frame-by-frame only. My wife and have created an animation studio called Jambo and begun to get acquainted with like-minded people who, like us, are burning with this idea. We want to grow professionally and to do great things, make beautiful, unusual animation, and not just commercials.
