Animation Mentor is 3 years old! Happy Birthday!!!

On March 27th 2005 Animation Mentor opened its doors to the first day of our first class. Today we had a little celebration at the office! Shawn, Carlos and I reflected on that first day.

3 years ago today we huddled around a computer monitor to watch the first class of Animation Mentor flood in. One, by one they came in. Kenshi Westover was the first person to upload his avatar. I'll never forget that moment as it became real and this little idea we had suddenly became a wonderful reality.

Later that night we hosted the first ever Animation Mentor Q&A at my house which lasted about 12 minutes before it crashed! Shawn, Carlos and I remember that moment very well as it was mixture of panic and excitement for what was happening.

There is still so far to go and so many more great things to do, but it was great to reflect on this special day and remember how we got to where we are today!
