My mentor, Pepe Valencia, is the co-author of the book "Inspired 3D Short Film Production", so I feel that I'm in really good hands when going thru the pre-production phase this term.
Animation Mentor had its first graduation ceremony in San Francisco last weekend. Here's a link to a news story (video): ABC News Graduation for Internet Student Animators. Cooooool! In 5 1/2 months, it's our turn :)
