Finally the render is done. :)
You can also download the quicktime in higher resolution, so you can see the details, like the smoke on the cigarrete. :)
About the classes, I couldn't be more satisfied. Keith is a really nice guy and an outstanding teacher: he expresses his ideas like very few and his experience makes him have a very keen eye for details.
On his introductory video, he made something very clear: if anyone in the program is looking for unconditional praise, it's more effective to show your animation to your mom. His job is to criticize what is needed, point out better solutions and praise only what deserves to be praised. This kind of feedback is really important for anyone who wants to grow as a professional. He looks at EVERYTHING on your work, and gives you very detailed information on how to improve your skills.
To take the four week classes there is a fee of 950 dollars. It's a considerable amount of money for who lives in a country with a weaker currency like mine, but what I've got in return is priceless. I even want to make it again in a near future.
One big advantage of APT is its "personal" side. The program fits your needs and areas of weakness. Because of this, if you make this program more than once, it won't be the same.
It follows a pretty simple method: there are some exercises for the week and, after you send him the results, he returns you a video with his impressions/suggestions/critics.
The classes are application agnostic, so you can use any program you want, and any medium (claymation, 2d...). In my case I used Blender, with Bassam Kurdali's rig Mancandy with some changes made by me.
In my humble opinion, I can't recommend it enough. If you have the money to invest in your animation education, I'd say go for it. :)
