Cris Silanskas Rating Review Posted on Google+ December 15, 2018

“Elite Animation Academy is a wonderful experience and eduction for students that are in elementary, middle and high school. Elite gives the younger student a valuable eduction and skills that are mainly taught at the college or after high school graduation level. The academy gives the younger kids who have a passion for animation, a chance to develop their skills and not having to wait until they graduate from high school. Highly recommend Elite Animation Academy!”

Thank you!

 “Greetings! This thank you is a couple of years late, but better late than never;) Our daughter joined two of your sessions during her high school sophomore and junior summers. Thomas Thorspecken, who will remain one of her greatest inspirations, was her first course in Introduction to Urban Sketching and Traditional Animation. The second was a brief look into the digital media of Maya. These class experiences inspired her to spend her last two years of high school building an amazing portfolio that enabled her admission to Ringling College of Art & Design! She was among 90 students out of 750 that were accepted into the Computer Animation program this fall. I’m happy to report that she is producing work that has consistently placed her among the top 10% of her peers, according to weekly class project critiques.  My husband and I attribute much of her success and ambition to her experience with Elite Academy programs. We sincerely thank you and your amazing professional staff and wish you continued success:) xo Joanie Roehl and family

“I am soooo very thankful that my daughter has an opportunity to take a class here this fall!!  The owners and their staff are so talented and experienced from decades of being professional animators. The fact that they are willing to share their expertise in this field with our community is so amazing, and it is a gift to all of us…..”

“I owe so much of the artistic skill I have today to my weekends spent at the Elite Animation Academy. Not only were the owners knowledgeable and passionate about drawing and animation but the teachers that they brought in to teach their classes were very informative and very helpful in creating a foundation in my art process, which led to my acceptance into the Savannah College of Art and Design as well as to my success in the School of Visual Art Department at the University of Central Florida. I strongly recommend attending classes at the Elite Animation Academy. They know the industry and they know what they are doing!”

“My son starting attending this Academy last April. He loves it! He went to the summer camp and has enrolled for the fall session. He willingly gives up his Saturday mornings to attend this Academy. He has a natural talent for drawing but has learned so much about drawing fundamentals and animation, in general. Mr. Todd is wonderful and so are the teachers!”

“My daughter’s experience was fantastic. Not only did she connect with a wonderfully qualified instructor, but her talent grew exponentially over one summer course. The classes were worth every penny to an artist who is working toward putting together a fabulous portfolio for college, art school or employment. Thanks, Elite and Amanda (instructor!) in particular!”

“Thank you Elite for the wonderful job you do in guiding and caring for your students. My son has grown so much in his artistic ability in such a short time. Whenever I tell him we’re signing up for another class the smile on his face is priceless. I can’t thank you enough for the support of my son and your patience with me as well. I am the queen of questions. Thank you for making this journey a joy for the both of us. Can’t wait to sign up for another smile! Love you guys lots! “

“Elite Animation Academy has provided our son with university level art training enabling him to excel well beyond his peers in terms of drawing skills, composition, and learning the animation process. Todd and Gladys are wonderful people. We have known them for years now, and Elite has become our son’s second home. They work wonderfully with kids and teenagers. My son’s experienced at Elite has changed his life and we are forever grateful!”

“Before we found Elite, we were looking everywhere for an animation school for my then 11-year-old. We sent him to expensive iD Tech camps all over the country. It was such a blessing to have found a school with such highly qualified instructors in a small setting, giving one-on-one attention. The classes are great, such as traditional animation, stop-motion, Flash, 3D Maya, animé, and many others. The owners, Todd and Gladys, are also wonderful. My son has learned so much over the past year. We would highly recommend Elite for your budding creative genius.”

“Mr. West and his staff are impeccable at their work, ethics & above all EXTREMELY Knowledgeably professional with all avenues of animation. My son is High Functioning Autistic and fell in love with the school, staff, curriculum set before him. This will be my sons career and I can not express the love and attention that Mr. West and all the teachers take a vital & intimate roll in each students curriculum. The staff and director allowed me to work with them and share my sons needs and then set an outstanding portfolio/curriculum for him to excel. I can not thank The West’s and the staff for the steady hand and compassionate heart they have for their craft and these students. The ratio is perfect, learning environment is superior. We’re currently working online as we’re 650 miles away. Except for winter and summer where we travel and relocate. However, because of this phenomenal school we’re seriously working towards living in Orlando. My sincere thank you to the West’s and staff of Elite Animation. A special thank you to Mr. Jason. You make Reid’s world every Saturday”.

“My son has taken both hand drawing and computer animation classes and I highly recommend these or any of the classes offered by Elite. Great professors and Todd and Gladys are great with the kids.”

“Our son has been attending classes for nearly 2 years and just loves it. The teachers are wonderful, friendly, knowledgable and very talented. Just love the variety in classes (from traditional paper and pencil to current computer animation styles). We are thrilled to see our son’s creations and advancements each week and enjoy having him teach us about techniques and terminology. Can not recommend this place enough!”
