New Class Announcement - "Story & Pitch Development for TV Animation" with Jay Oliva~!!



Hi Everyone,


NEW STORYBOARD CLASS ANNOUNCEMENT:

Due to popular demand, we are planning to open a new "Story & Pitch Development for TV Animation" class for the Spring 2019 term

(The class is 8 weeks in length and will be starting on Monday, Feb. 25th, 6:30PM~11:30PM).



This new class will be taught by Jay Oliva and the class format will be intimate in size (10~15 students max) so Jay can work with the students to build their storyboard sequences.

Right now, we are giving the class enrollment priority to the current storyboard class waiting list students first and their deadline to respond in on Saturday, Feb. 23rd at 12PM PST.





HOW DO I ENROLL?:

If you would like to enroll, please email us at contact@conceptdesignacad.com to express your interest.

This way we can Paypal invoice you on Saturday afternoon for any available openings after the waiting list student enrollment ends at noon.

To run this class, we need at least 10 students enrolled. We will be able to announce the enrollment results by Sunday morning to inform everyone if we have enough students to start this new class.


If we are not able to get enough students by the Sunday morning deadline, we will refund everyone's tuition back in full.




Thanks for your time in reading this. The class space is very limited, so we will be taking the enrollment request in the order of email received. Sign up soon and hope to see you this Spring~!!

Best,
