Bringing Magic Into the Classroom

DigiPen faculty Mark Henne and Jazno Francoeur spent many years at Pixar and Disney respectively, working on a combined 16 feature films.  Their backgrounds provide a great foundation for mentoring students, where Jazno is a traditional animator focused on natural effects such as water and fire, and Mark dedicated his work in using computer simulation to create the organic movement of hair, cloth, and more.  This panel focuses on how these backgrounds affect the lessons we teach the next generation of digital animators.
