Rise Up Animation Portfolio Feedback

In an effort to support all People of Color in the animation industry, Rise Up Animation is offering free animation portfolio feedback.  This is a great opportunity to talk with a mentor (via Zoom) about whatever you want to focus on, including 2D animation, stop motion, modeling, rigging, production, or a variety of other animation topics.

In an effort to make a change in the animation industry, “RISE UP Animation” will offer free portfolio feedback to people of color. We’re excited to meet unique artists with diverse backgrounds and different skill levels including high school, college, professional or animation enthusiasts! … We’re looking forward to helping you RISE UP in the animation industry!
