Greetings from THE ANIMATION ACADEMY in Burbank California!

For two decades we've been the best kept secret in the animation industry. Founded by Charles Zembillas in January 1998 with 20 students in the backroom of a local restaurant. Now 20 years later the Academy enjoys a legacy as one of the most significant and influential educational and vocational training programs in animation. We're certified by 4 unions in entertainment production. Many of our students have risen to the highest levels of the industry. We've had thousands of face to face students in Burbank. Many from across the US and from countries around the world. Artists come to the Academy to learn and create and go on to amazing things at professional levels!

All within the context of affordable education!



Now we want to bring the artistic benefits of our program to Patreon and share what we've been doing in Burbank with everyone seeking to improve upon their abilities at creating from one's imagination wherever you may be!



Create original character based properties! Develop exciting projects! Learn the basic skills it takes to create at the highest levels. We're making our vast educational content available to our Patreon community. Unique and exceptional resources along with years of instructional experience.

Even if you're not an artist you can still be a part of our community and support the Academy! 



We're pioneering professional art education for animation on Patreon! Join up and see how much better you'll get with your art. If you're not a student you can support the Academy with your generous patronage.

Thank you and KEEP CREATING !!
