Puppeteer Lounge Student Feedback ~ Naweed Khan

One of my student at Puppeteer Lounge, Naweed Khan from United Kingdom shares his thoughts about us:
"My experience with puppeteer lounge was highly valuable. Taking the advanced workshop course was a great learning experience, where I developed and improved my rigging skills to a stronger and more refined level. The tasks were well thought out to encompass a wide variety of subjects that cover what is expected of a character TD in the industry. Suchan also provided good productive and encouranging feedback that helped me produce strong material for my rigging reel."

Student Feedback ~ Frank Guthrie

We are always happy to hear good stuffs from our students!

Frank Guthrie (USA) ~ "…When one of my clients asked for the model I designed and modeled for them to be "animation-ready," I discovered how rusty my rigging skills were… Puppeteer Lounge got me up and running in a matter of days! something other schools would have taken weeks, if not months and with ridiculous expense. Suchan's experience, knowledge and - specially with me, patiences, made this whole process not only easy to understand, but most important… enjoyable! My client not only was impressed with the rigging, but has commissioned more characters for his project. I recommend Puppeteer Lounge to anyone who wants to get up and running with rigging quickly and with confidence…"

Feel free to check out Frank's website. He is exceptionally good at sculpting and character animation! Thank you for choosing to learn from us Frank :)

I am really looking forward for some awesome facial rigs by Frank!
