Hi. We will be running two beta classes in October-November to test the AnimSchool system.

We are accepting 12 beta applicants for the 3D Animation class and 12 for the 3D Character class, which will focus on modeling.

We are looking for people who know a little about these subjects but want to interact with a Blue Sky Studios teacher for four weeks and try out the system.

There is a $50 charge to test the payment processing system and pay the teachers a little for their time.

Classes will begin about October 25, in the evening EDT and continue once a week for 4 weeks. Beta testers will be expected to devote about 10 hours per week to completing assignments. They can be of varied experience levels, but all testers should be familiar with Maya (or Softimage).

To request inclusion in the beta program, please send an email to
Please include a link to any 3D animation/modeling/rigging work you have done.

See the AnimSchool FAQ for more about the school.
