"If you want to take animation
seriously then I strongly
recommend this course."
One of the best, if not the best courses on 3d animation. Really well explained and thoroughly detailed lessons, WITH original dialogs and sets.
Teachers even give feedback at 0 extra cost! That’s insane!
I like the course, and I'm enjoying it. It's not easy to find good animation courses that include lip sync, face animation and are only for Blender, and at a very affordable price compared to animation schools. This course is very worth it.
TOAnimate's Blender Basics & Animation Courses are informative as well as easily understandable!
After their courses, I can confidently add Blender + animation into my workflow.
This course is what I needed! I had alot of questions over the whole animation process in blender. Thank God for the TOAnimate team they have done a thorough job giving us proper breakdowns on how things work in blender and nuggets of tips and tricks.
Leon Seal Gachuiri
All I can say is WOW, this is a talented community!
I love the direction TOAnimate has taken with the short, rich content, that laser focuses on just animation. Plus the PDF under the lesson? bravo! I have picked up so many pointers right off jump.
I am telling you, do not waste your time, you will not find a match of these animation series anywhere! Community, including the instructors, are extremely active and helpful as well.
The best place to learn 3D animation in Blender.
Super useful! As a person who comes from a different animation software, this has been the smoothest transition ever. Highly recommended!
Excellent course and community. They really put their hearts and souls into this.

No, but you’re free to use them on your demo-reel or non-commercial social media posts.
Can I use TOAnimate assets commercially and on social media?
No, if you purchase our Mentorship course, you can use your sessions whenever you like!
Do the Mentorship critiques expire?
Yes, we'll be keeping all lessons up to date as Blender releases new versions.
Do lessons get updated with new Blender releases?
You’ll have access to the Animation Station (our private community). No question goes unanswered there :)
What if I run into an error or get stuck on a lesson?
Absolutely. We have an entire section of the Ultimate Animation Course dedicated to facial animation including lip-sync.
Do you teach how to do lip-sync?
Yes! Completing it will reward you with a certificate of completion! But keep in mind that this is not an accredited certificate, so it will not count towards a school/college credit.
Will I get a certificate upon completion?
Nope! You can be a total newbie to Blender and animation before taking this course.
Do I need to already know Blender?
Getting solid education (like taking this course) will give you a solid understanding of animation, plus you will have a demo reel that you can use to apply for jobs (essential!).
Will this help me get a job in animation?
We are not an accredited school and so you will not have a college degree upon completing the course. However, the information taught in the course fully replaces (and surpasses) any college curriculum, at a fraction of the price.
Is this a replacement for animation school?
No, you’ll pay only once and gain lifetime access to all current and future lessons & assets!
Does my access expire?
