“It is a personal mandate that our instructors are busy working within the animation industry so that we are teaching from industry learned truths and using the same up-to-date programs and tech we use at home while working with the biggest studios and characters in the world. To prove this, Lipscomb can claim it is the only school in the world to have two former Disney supervising animators as instructors.” —Tom Bancroft, Artist in Residence
