LCAD Animation remains one of the few programs that continue to instruct students in traditional, hand-drawn animation as well computer-generated animation and stop-motion.
In order for hand-drawn animation to continue on to the next generation, it needs to be kept in good practice and mentored in an environment that fosters the highest traditions and standards that have been established and held with regard,“ said Lopez. "This program will provide a unique opportunity for the next generation of artists to be mentored by a experienced animator in a professional setting and learn, first-hand, the highest standards that go into making a hand-crafted work of animation.
