The Animation Experience was started by Daniel Shirley; he found that when he went to university the people who succeeded the most were the students with previous knowledge and experience in the chosen subject, even though most say you don’t need the skills before you come to university. Luckily for him prior to going to university he had lots of experience in art, but also he taught himself lots of software and worked on a lot of self-directed projects. but a lot of the students in his class did not have this prior knowledge, and because of this was left behind by the class and had a significantly lower standard of work. Schools don’t focus on specialized subjects on animation so therefore it is hard to gain the even the most essential of skills like Photoshop. So the aim of The Animation Experience is to give students the opportunity to learn specialist animation and digital design skills.
