Luka Arh - TOAnimate animation course 5 star review

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!

Gloria Castellanos - TOAnimate animation course 5 star review

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.

Gloria Castellanos

Joe Culter - TOAnimate animation course 5 star review

Jeff Carnal - TOAnimate animation course 5 star review

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.

to a pro with a skill

From poses to lip-syncs to full performances, this is the 
only animation course that will give you the skills

to animate any shot you can dream up. 

Beginner section of TOAnimate Blender Animation Course, teaching the 12 principles of animation through basic excercises.

Animation Principles for Beginners
Timing vs Spacing: The Difference
How to Read the Graph Editor Curves
The 'Normalize' Button
Squash & Stretch - Bouncing Ball Exercise
Arcs & Momentum - Ball Bounce Across the Screen
Overlapping Action - Ball with Tail Exercise 
Seaweed Motion - Tail Swing
Overshoot & Settle - Sideways Motion with Tail
Putting it all together! - Advanced Tail Practice
Tennis Ball vs Bowling Ball - Animating Different Materials
Everything Is a Bouncing Ball OR a Seaweed! (Lecture)
Simple Walk Cycle (Robot) - Key Poses
Straight Ahead vs Pose-to-Pose Animation - Which one and when?
Animation Examples for Beginners

This section is perfect for any beginner who is ready to dive into the world of animation and has little to no prior experience. 


You will become familiar with the 12 principles of animation as described by Ollie Johnston and Frank Thomas. We teach these essential principles through popular exercises, starting with the bouncing ball and finishing with a simple walk cycle (see the full curriculum below). 


At the same time, we demonstrate how to use the main animation editors in practice - this will help you become comfortable with Blender’s tools introduced in the Blender Basics course. 

By the end of this section, you will have a solid understanding of the animation foundations, know how to use Blender efficiently and be able to animate simple characters and movements.

The Ultimate Animation Course

The animation learning curve is steep.

We've flattened it.

Here’s a recap of everything you get:

  • The Core Curriculum

  • 7 Days to Blender Mastery 

         [Value $95 - free when you buy the main course]

  • Access to Animation Station

  • Demo Reel Booster Pack 

  • Textbook-Quality PDF Handbooks

  • Blender Hotkey Cheatsheet

  • How To Land A Job In The Animation Industry

  • Fully Subtitled in 7 languages

  • Movie-Quality Character Rigs

  • Movie-Quality Rendered Props

  • Movie-Quality Pre-Lit Sets

  • 100+ professionally voice-acted 

         dialogue lines & custom sound effects


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 lip-syncing?

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?

You can pay only once and gain lifetime access to all current and future lessons & assets!

The only way would lose your access is If you choose the "payment plan" option and cancel before its completion.

Does my access expire?
