"I will never forget the experience I had at Lost Boys. The training I received went well beyond my expectations and provided me with a level of exposure to industry-style production that helped prepare me for today’s fast paced work environment in a way that I think very few schools can. Not only did Mark Bénard teach a complete array of industry techniques and practices, but he pushed me to reach my own goals and strive to discover new approaches. Lost Boys absolutely put me where I am today. It was a great experience and is a great way to prepare yourself for a career in Visual Effects and Animation."
