Anyone interested in enhancing their skills in fields related to 2D Animation and 2D Motion Design. Must have a portfolio or demo reel.
MENTORSHIP “TIME LIMITS”
1-3 months with clearly defined goals
TYPE OF MENTORSHIP
Bi-weekly online video calls for up to 50 minutes and occasional messaging through Discord for quick feedback and questions. The mentee needs to have a clear goal for the duration of the mentorship program. For example, the goal might be making a body of work for applying to specific jobs or changing careers, making a short animation, completing the pre-production steps for creating a short animation, developing characters, and concept design for animation, etc.
It would be great if the mentee used a task management tool such as Asana or Trello and shared their progress toward meeting their goals with me.
