About Howard Wimshurst

Thank you for checking out this Patreon page. I have some big ideas for the future of this channel and you can help me to make them a reality! But first, let me introduce myself and what I'm all about:
Animation is a fascinating medium. I'm an animation producer/ director exploring the world of 2d animation and the variety of skills linked to animation.

 I have worked for clients around the world as an animator/ director/ producer. Now I am working to build a community of empowered artists by celebrating the most inspiring ideas, techniques and philosophies in animation. I call this project Animator Guild.
 I have released over 200 free videos on my YouTube channel. I want to sustain and improve the channel to become the best provider of animation education on the internet! And now you can help to keep this going.

Your Patreon support helps to fund:
Adobe subscription - used to edit videos

How to Animate a SWORD FIGHT - a 3-part series.
This has been requested an insane amount of times! With this funding I will be able to take enough time out to make it one of the best tutorials you have ever seen.

I will be able to hire a part-time editor/ assistant to help out with the production of videos for the channel. That means more videos!
