Instructor Yarhouse Introduces Toon Boom to Students
Animator and Kendall instructor Brad Yarhouse was recently interviewed by Toon Boom software regarding his ten years of experience in animation and drawing, the piece he is currently working on, ‚??Deserving Nothing, So Everything is a Gift,‚?Ě and his experiences teaching at Kendall. Says Yarhouse, ‚??Being able to work with students, to help them express themselves and grow, and to share my excitement for the medium and be inspired by their energy in return is a joy.‚?Ě
Yarhouse teaches animation and digital media at Kendall. The Digital Media program is just beginning to use Toon Boom Animate Pro, with Yarhouse leading the charge for Toon Boom as a potential option for students.
Currently working on a Masters in Drawing, Yarhouse‚??s animation has been shown in festivals around the world, most recently at the 2009 KAFI festival in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Yarhouse took second place in television commercial work at the 2007 KAFI festival and in 2006, a short that he worked briefly on with an animation company from South Africa Beyond Freedom was nominated for best short of the year at the Berlin Film Festival.
