Becoming a Mentee is as much about you as it is about AMB.
If you are interested in being a better Animation Artist fill in the form and AMB will review your request.
However, before we go on,
I will warn you. This isn’t for everyone and not every artist who applies is going to qualify.
If you’re not a positive, teachable person who is open to shifting your current thoughts towards becoming a superior artist or animator –
then this is not right for you.
If you’re afraid to take on the responsibility of bringing out the best in your own animation and don’t want to be held accountable for it... and you’re happy with getting the same results you’re already getting today for the next 1-10 years... then this is not for you.
If you are inexperienced and think spending a month on animating a bouncing ball is boring… and you want to get straight into animating an epic anime fight … then this is not for you.
If you are interested in how to move a mouse around a software package to make it do lots of things for you instead of how to move a character to recreate the illusion of life… then this is not for you
AMB has a very high expectation of his students.
He will only accept applicants who are willing to commit to his teachings and You are required to provide a link to your work where AMB can assess your current level.

The 3 Biggest Obstacles For Self-Taught Animators & Artists
1. Constantly Learning Never Doing
You buy every Book available; spend endless hours watching free videos on the internet. You may even buy some of the video courses and be inspired by the amazing artistry ... You’ll attempt to try what you see but never really see it through because you’ll get carried away by another source of information. You’re stuck in theory and will never feel “ready” to put it into practice properly
2. Loss of Focus
You had the dream it was big but no one is there to keep you focused and on track. Too often you spend all your time doing what you want to do or what you would like to do instead of what you need to do to achieve your goals. The internet is an amazing place but also very distracting it’s easy to lose focus and eventually sight of what has to be done. You need someone to help you remain focused.
3. Lack of Direction – Enthusiasm turns to Depression
You know what you need to do and where you are going... but don’t know how to structure your learning. You have tons of enthusiasm, but not enough experience to control it. You are often too hard on yourself when you see others get to a level that you would like to be at yourself. Your enthusiasm turns into depression as you lose confidence in your abilities and suddenly everyone’s work seems to be better than yours.
Here’s where the mentor comes in. I can guide you through the exact steps you need to take to help you move forward.
After undergoing my Animation mentorship you will overcome all these problems and I guarantee that you’ll get to a standard that will be the envy of all but the insanely delusional in your current situation.
No one is 100% satisfied with their work and I know that you’re not even close to being satisfied. You’re happy with a lot of things that are working for you in life right now. But ONE thing isn’t. Maybe it’s your character animation ability, maybe it’s your storyboard/ film making skills, maybe it’s designing characters. Maybe it’s some other animation based frustration..
And you want things to be better than where they are right now.
You want to be able to get your ideas out there to a high standard, you want to reach more people using your own skills, talents, and knowledge by creating inspiring animation based content. You want to have a REAL shot at making it in the animation industry, you want to worry less about money and not be AFRAID of CHARGING what YOU’RE WORTH.
And you know YOU CAN Achieve all of the above and more...Otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this right now. Good for You! Because You are aware of your potential and understand that you need guidance, you have a HUGE advantage and Unlike most people, you’ve got a great shot at actually getting what you want. But right now, here you are. Looking for the right guidance
I’ve got the experience that WILL help you and I’d like to share it with you.
Let’s be Clear on the Matter Right Now
If you decide to Learn from me, you’ll become a better Animation Artist, no question about it. But the Journey from where you are now and where you want to be Will not be easy I don’t buy into that Short cut, one simple trick crap. And I don’t do the “Animation Hacks (insert ridiculous number)” “Cheat Sheet” BS.
If you want to delude yourself by playing copycat to a few poses in a book by all means knock yourself out but that’s not what I do. In fact, it boils my blood to know how many peoples desires are played upon and used to sucker them into believing empty promises which leave them heartbroke and busted.
Those that want a quick solution will encounter problem after problem and seek solution after solution until they realize that it’s their own mind set that’s the problem. Deep down inside they know that those “overnight solutions” don’t work but laziness prevents them from taking the proper action.
We are all lazy but there are just some things we cannot afford to be lazy about.
In our case that something is Animation.
I know this to be the truth. You know this to be the truth. I believe in speaking the truth.
