What course did you study at ANOMALIA?

It all started in 2010 when I enrolled in my first Anomalia course, a two-month one. The programme offered everything I needed: Introduction to Maya with David Toušek, Animation Basics with Drif Segeardóttir, Acting with Andy Schmidt and, finally, Lip-sync with Ritch Quade. The following year I did Tips and Tricks with Keuth Lang and my last course was Jason Schleifer’s High Polish Details.

How did studying at ANOMALIA help you into the world of animation, gaming, vfx?

All this training has helped me transfer my 2D animation knowledge into 3D software, use it actively and adapt faster to and keep up with current trends and technologies.

What are you working on at the moment? And what have you previously worked on?

At present I work as a 3D animator, in fact I have ever since my first course with Anomalia. I was a student of animation at Tomas Bata University in Zlín before that and I didn’t really have a summer break after graduation because I spent it at my first Anomalia course. It was the best summer I’ve ever had. The next step was the Labour Office but I wasn’t registered there for a long time as I got my first 3D animation job after a month and that’s how it’s been until now (not taking into account my maternity leave).

If you had to sum up your time at ANOMALIA in one word, what would it be and why?

What would I say about Anomalia? The best way to get all you need to be a better ANIMATOR!

Intense course in a great environment with people who leave as your friends and experience no tutorial can give you. All of this Anomalia event is immensely energizing and inspiring, and what’s best about it – you are surrounded by people with the same passion:D And that’s simply INCREDIBLE!
