We are excited to see their progress and will be there to support them with our tutorials!
Our friends at Escena Escuela de Animación in Mexico are kicking off a new course on 3D Content Production. They have chosen CG Cookie as an educational resource for the course and will be using our tutorials to learn Blender!

To integrate students into a real production environment, they opened Escena Animation Studio this year, assembling a team of select students who will be working together over the next year and a half to produce a teaser for a feature film. The focus of the project is on using open-source software, so Blender was the perfect choice for Mauricio Flores, the course instructor and project director. Mauricio is a successful CG artist and 3D generalist who has previously worked on titles like The Quest for the Jaguar Warrior.
