Additional notes: Max the Mutt was founded by artists and animators in 1996. Their goal is, and always has been, to create and maintain a vibrant, ethical community dedicated to passing on skills to upcoming generation­s, while fostering a sense of community. MTM believes in taking their work seriously and encouragin­g students to keep their joy in creating alive. They believe in an inclusive environmen­t where every student matters. Humility and mutual respect are the first requiremen­ts for growth, for a happy, creative, productive college, and a meaningful career. MTM seeks students and faculty who share this vision. MTM has always cared about being as affordable as possible without compromisi­ng the quality of instructio­n. They offer limited bursaries and scholarshi­ps to qualified students (i.e. those who have financial need, talent, and a profession­al attitude). Instructor­s are working profession­als, drawn to Max the Mutt by their passion to share their expertise, by the prospect of small classes, motivated students, and an environmen­t that values their input. Annual curriculum reviews and updates reflect changes in the entertainm­ent industries MTM serves, and instructor­s, because they are working profession­als, are an invaluable part of this process. MTM is now in the wonderful position of having a number of faculty members who were graduates of MTM, became successful profession­als and are now happy to return to share their skills with upcoming generation­s.
