Courses  Intro to 3D Animation: Character

Degree BFA, Bowling Green State University

Jeff Simonetta began his path into animation by attending Bowling Green State University. While attending Jeff was active as the chair of the BGSU ACM SIGGRAPH Student chapter for 2 years and worked to restore the digital arts community at BGSU. In 2011 he recieved a BFA in Digital Arts specializing in Animation.

After graduation he completed animation workshops through ianimate.net, studying with some of the best animators in the industry to further refine his craft.

Recently, Jeff and a team of three others founded Photonic Studio after recognizing the lack of quality 3D services in Cleveland. Photonic Studio is a 3D visualization and animation studio with clients in the architecture, product, and advertising industries.

Today, Jeff continues to help build his community with teaching and collaboration. He loves animation of all sorts and wishes to spread his passion to new generations of animators.
