New Teacher: Creature Design 1 w/ Jerad Marantz!!

Hi everyone,

I have two quick announcements to make. One is a reminder that Creature Design 1 on Sat morning 9:30AM~12:30PM is open for enrollment!!

Second is that we have a new instructor, Jerad Marantz for the this coming semester to take over the class for Anthony Francisco.

Anthony will be taking a break this term, due to a full work schedule. He plan to continue to swing by the class as a guest speaker from time to time.

Jerad's design background came from both film and game productions. He have been working for studios such as Stan Winston, ADI, Climax Games, Gnomon, NCsoft and Aaron Sims Studio. Some his recent projects include "I am Legend" and "Tabula Rasa".

Jeard have a great passion for creature design and a great demo teacher at showing and explaining his work process. This is a great class for anyone who is interested in improving or expanding their creature designs skills for either film development or game production. Previous figure drawing experience is strongly recommended to help you get the most out of the class.

If you have any questions about the class or sign us please feel free to contact us anytime.
