Today is the first of April but AM is not the kind of school do april fools so well, I am pretty lucky this time again. Robert Russ will be my new mentor for Class 02.

“Robert Russ joined Pixar Animation Studios in 1996 and has had the opportunity to work on almost all of the Pixar films. He began his work at Pixar as a crowd animator on “A Bug’s Life”. From there, he moved on to work as an animator on “Toy Story 2,” “Monsters, Inc.” and the Academy Award©-winning, “Finding Nemo.” For Pixar’s sixth feature film, “The Incredibles,” Robert was able to expand his role as an animator by assisting the character articulation team to build the basic set of controls that animators use to animate all the characters. This process involved helping design the controls, model testing and creating animation tests. Once the control creation process was complete, Robert directed his attention to animating the characters Edna Mode (“E”), Mr. Incredible/Bob Parr and Elastigirl/Helen Parr.”

I have seen his previous E-critiques and it looks like all the hard work we are gonna put into our assignements will pay off.
