QUOTES 2019

“I learned a lot from this Mentorship. The most important lesson is 'don't be afraid to create'. Before the Mentorship I was really shy and afraid to share my work because I thought it’s not good enough to show. But after these 7 months working with Will on my personal project, I realised that every voice is important, and our community needs all kind of art. And you do not need to hide it, just express yourself.”

Vlad - Mentee to The Mill (Motion Mentorship)


“Don't be afraid of feedback! I was constantly able to share my work with my mentor whilst taking in constructive criticism. Although criticism isn't always fun; it is an important part of the design process which helps to push the project further. Learn to take criticism and take it with a pinch of salt.”

Stephanie - Mentee to Baugasm (3D Mentorship)


“It was quite interesting to get a match with a person you do not know and learn how to work with someone with different processes and culture. This program really connects people from the industry whether you are a student or a professional.”

Vallée Duhamel - Video Mentors


“This mentorship really helps by giving people a look about how our industry works. I was inspired. Vlad came into this project with a great idea but not so much knowledge on how to make it, and over the months he worked on it, he learned what motion design really is.”

Will MacNeil, The Mill - Motion Mentor
