instructor profiles David Mooy
Multi talented with a passion for teaching.
A longtime veteran of the industry, David began his career illustrating car accidents for the courtroom, which led to illustrating the gruesome injuries caused, which led to illustrating surgical procedures, which led to working on the VFX for dozens of fancy car commercials! This led to VFX work on a wide variety of films, ride films, TV series, and more commercials--which then led to modeling for five Disney animated features and four Disney “apps.” All of this led to his current career as a freelance consultant, modeler, and technical artist for companies working in advertising, design, VFX, games, VR, and big oil. And now all of that has led to doing one of the things he enjoys doing most: teaching.

Awesome teacher, would take other classes taught by David without giving it second thought. Very knowledgeable and friendly, assignments are paced very well, lots of great info that is useful with real applications.

David Mooy (Intro to Maya) talks relaxed and doesn't sound rushed which is a big plus for students who are not native English speakers.
