Keyframe of Mind – Episode 03


Welcome back, Keyframe of Mind listeners!

In this episode, we get into part two of our discussion on education. Over time, we’ve individually explored a wide variety of self-education options, and we spend this episode getting into the nitty gritty of our experiences with each option. We also go over many accessible animation resources, the impact of our studies on our careers, as well as create enough oddly motivational quotes to fill an odd, motivational calendar.

Don’t forget to check back for episode 4! We’ll be diving into our personal experiences with burnout along with a special guest.
