Hey Armand,

Wow, that's awesome! I really wish I could participate.
Btw, I'm currently looking for a new full time job, so if you hear or see anything, please don't hesitate to shoot it my way:) Any help is of course highly appreciated!

Take care and good luck with the Class,

My office is right next door to Armand's office here at Sony Pictures Animation, and I just want to say he has my personal endorsement.

More than just technical ability Armand is a thinking artist/a visual problem solver.

Armand's technical expertice and experience would be well worth the money. If you are in the area, don't miss the opportunity to learn from one of the best.

Andrew Glazebrook said...

This is a fantastis idea, Armand, the program sounds really really interesting.
I'm sure your class will be absolutely amazing and an invaluable experience for those who will participate.
..unfortunately I guess that working in Ireland I would never get seven weeks of holidays. :(

Ah well. if you're there I'll come to say hello this summer, I'll be in LA for a week in august.

All the best for your class, Armand! I'll spread the word and see if I can send you some damned lucky friend! ;)

Take care,

I so wish I could - but I live in Britain! I'm sure you're a top teacher - you've obviously got a lot of experience / knowledge to share. Ps I went on your website recently - it's very impressive

Have you thought about approaching The Gnomon Workshop about putting some of your approach down on one (or two) of their DVDs. It makes sense to spread the word out to a worldwide audience. Just MHO ...
