Animation Mentor Graduation Speech

… from Andrew Stanton no less. My commencement speech when graduating from Animation Mentor was done by Lee Unkrich, and was fantastic.

Animation Mentor Commencement Speech

There are a couple of things that he mentioned that really struck home – the idea of answering simply “I animate” rather than titling myself as an animator, that the title is something you earn through work not something that you can bestow upon yourself. Also, I just love Stanton’s delivery, he’s a great public speaker, and here’s his TED talk which I also think was fantastic, and well worth taking the time to watch.
