Alan Becker, my former student at CCAD, posted a retrospective video of his work on his his web series Animator Versus Animation.  I had Alan in a number of classes and he exemplified all the qualities you like seeing in a student- hard working, listens to critiques and asks a lot of questions, works a LOT outside of class and always looking to improve.  He's built a huge following on YouTube of his animation and continues to grow his brand each day.  'Thanks' to Alan for the wonderful shout out in he video.  I was an extreme pleasure to get to work with him.  With someone that driven, as a teacher, you're suggesting little course corrections here and there but basically step back/ get out of the way and let them go.  Best of luck, Alan, as you continue to grow as a filmmaker and can't wait to see what the next ten years has in store for you!

  1. You were referred to as the lifesaver by Alan himself. Knowing that he has a huge fanbase, you motivated him once more and now that he is very popular, i would like to thank you for your motivation you given to Alan, your student.
