ANOMALIA would like to feature a very talented animator and artist, Siniša Mataič, who has been part of our professional training in 2013 on the 3D Character Animation and Short Film Making programs. Siniša is a great example of a truly dedicated, not only talented but also very hard working professional and independent artist, ambitious both with taking his own skills to another level and encouraging as a team member as well, which makes him a valuable asset to modern animation production of our times.
We asked Siniša to share shortly his experience with you:
I’m an animator from Croatia. My area of expertise is in 2D animation, so that’s why I decided to attend ANOMALIA, so I can learn and work in 3D field as well. I have to say that animation as a growing industry is getting more and more demanding and animators have to be able to easily move from one position to another.
That’s why I had wonderful experience working with the best professionals in the industry at ANOMALIA courses. Learn from their experience, but also I have meet other professionals from across Europe that attended the courses, connected with them and made a larger network for possible future jobs.
I have to put special attention on Short film making courses, where a real studio environment was created. I had personally worked on 8 short films, but I never had this kind of learning experience in such short amount of time. It was a unique experience and I harvested a lot of animation knowledge, but also storytelling skills, which I am transferring to all of my new tasks.
Every animator who wants to work in this highly competitive, highly demanding industry of animation, needs to prepare him/herself the best s/he can, and that’s what ANOMALIA is offering. From particular advance topics to real stressful work environment. I would recommend these courses to everyone who wants to compete with the best in the industry.
