About the instructors:
Michael Woodside has his BA in Digital Media with an emphasis on Animation from the University of Central Florida. He moved out to Los Angeles in 2008 to pursue a career in animation.
He started as a Technical Animator (working on such films as Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked, Hop, and Snow White and the Huntsman). While working as a Technical Animator, Michael attended several schools to further his skills in animation. The training he got from the Animation Collaborative in San Francisco allowed him to fulfill one of his dreams. Currently, he works as an Assisting Animator at Walt Disney Animation Studios. His film credits there include Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, and Big Hero Six.
The insights given to him by his mentors have allowed him the chance to pursue his dreams with confidence. He can’t wait to share his insights with a new generation of artists.
