For a one-time enrollment price, I guide you through everything from the very basics of equipment and how to use it, all the way through my full animation workflow. I use step-by-step exercises you can learn and apply in your own animation projects.


It is the ultimate guide to getting started in 2D animation. The curriculum has over 110+ training videos (19+ hours) with dozens of exclusive downloadable learning material.

This $200 course is better than the $4000 uni course I took.

Would highly recommend." - James Dickson


My name is Howard Wimshurst. I'm an award-winning animator from London


I have worked professionally for a variety of clients ranging from the BBC to Sam Kolder.

As a teacher I have produced over 170 video lessons which have taught over over 215 thousand subscribers my advanced animation techniques. Until now, my lessons have been about advanced animation topics. I have never gone in-depth with the basics of how I actually make my animations.

​I look forward to mentoring you through what took me 8 years to develop on my own.
