Hi!

First, a little about me. My name is Michael McKinley, and I've been a game industry veteran for about 13 years. I currently teach at Northwest College of Art & Design. I've been pretty enthusiastic about a particular program called Maya that I've used all throughout my career. I decided to create a YouTube channel as a resource for others to use to learn more about the different tools and commands that are available in Maya... and there are a lot of them! The long-term goal is to have a video for each tool and command that Maya has to offer.

I've been maintaining my channel over a year now and currently have over 200 videos (as of this writing) and still going strong. I strive to average at least one video per week, usually more as time permits. I'd love to make my videos even better, with better sound quality, more community involvement, more demonstrations, live stream class rooms, perhaps even adding focus on other tools to accompany the Maya videos. I'm hoping these things and more will be possible with your generous support!

Thank you for your time and your support!

When I reach 10 Patrons, I'll start hosting a monthly online gathering! We'll do screen-sharing so I can do demos, chat while I work on stuff, critique and offer suggestions for your own work, etc. Should be lots of fun!
