My approach to teaching and lesson planning is customisation. Every lesson is tailored to the individual student or group, whatever their current skill level and experience is in Autodesk Maya and in Unity. From no prior knowledge to advanced but in need of refreshing, the structure of every lesson will be from the ground up, configured by the students' needs.
My teaching philosophy is patience and prudence in all things, that no one is a failure for not understanding something, and that help is to be always given when asked for.
I am a recent graduate of JMC Academy with a Bachelor of Creative Arts in Game Design and have spent the last two-three years mastering the entire production pipeline (modelling, UV's, texturing, rigging, animation, VFX, lighting, rendering, and programming) in Maya and Unity for not only myself, but to volunteer in assisting my fellow classmates and other undergraduates along the way. Solving problems and troubleshooting became something I did for anyone and everyone who needed help, and teaching while doing so simply came naturally thereon.
Last minute cancellations are fine, just please let me know at least an hour before the lesson or travel fees (if applicable) will still be charged.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative and Professional Writing as well as my latest degree in Creative Arts for Game Design, and have recently finished or am currently finishing multiple projects involving the entire game development & design process using Maya and Unity.
Perfect! Joshua has been such a great help! I'd been struggling with Maya at uni and was about to throw the towel in! Thanks goodness for Joshua! He has helped me get to grips with all the basics and I am now much more confident and definitely not afraid of Maya anymore. If you are having trouble with Maya, don't give up - get in touch with Joshua! He'll show you how to solve problems and teach you some really handy shortcuts! Thank you!
A quick study and keen to learn, Maria is an enthusiastic and determined student who has a bright future in animation ahead of her.
Perfect! Very deep knowledge of the software. Always has an answer and an experience for everything. Feels like I can learn anything from him.
Excellent foundational knowledge with the propensity to go far, providing maintained consistency in ambition.
I studied with Josh in university and throughout he has been a great help to me and other classmates with 3d modelling, rigging, animating. I've worked with him on only one project but the rigging and animated were spot on and professional. I think he would be a great teacher cause he loves helping people solve problems and showing them new and interesting ways todo things
As a lecturer myself I can confidently say Josh has the knowledge to help you with any 3D lesson.
He is a great all rounder and has a fantastic work ethic.
Josh strives to problem solve and has always been able to find his way around a problem, as demonstrated in classes where he was always there to lend a hand to fellow students.
Josh is a super friendly, energetic guy and his teaching style is a positive hands on approach.
If you are looking for someone who knows his stuff and is there to help you, Josh is your guy.
He seems to always know either how to fix a problem or what to look for to fix the problem, which when it comes to programs like Maya is very useful, such as when our groups director's Maya project crushed after hours worth of animation was spent on it and he managed to get us the file back with in afew minutes (this happened afew times) as well as knowing how to get the outcome you want in a faster and easier method most evident when it comes to modelling. Best of all if he doesn't know what you do you can bet he'll keep trying at it untill he gets is right! You can trust Josh!
Joshua is an excellent, patient, understanding and knowledgeable teacher. Whatever problem I have faced he has always been able to find a solution and recommend alternative methods if need be. Joshua’s knowledge of maya exceeds the knowledge of any average 3D modeller in the industry. He is open to questions and always speaks in a clear manner that is easy to understand. He is an inspirational teacher that is passionate about his industry and wants to help the next generation find their feet with a program that otherwise can be easy to get lost in. I would highly recommend him as a teacher as you would be more than equipped for the industry with Joshua as your teacher.
