Fall 2019

I'm fond of cats.

Welcome to the Fall term of 2019.

I'm excited to meet the new cadre of ANC students I'll be working with over the next two semesters.
(We're going to make some cool stuff!).

There's also a new 2 year animation program in the works that I'll be helping design with my colleague Paul W. (Tons of new things for me to learn.)

I can't wait to get started!

My office hours this term are on Thursdays 12-4p
in room 508-1. To make an appointment just email:

Alyssa Jarvis (

Winter 2019

Actually this images inspires me to resolve to make hats for my cats. Images of annoyed cats to follow?

Happy New Year and welcome back. Preparing for the second semester of ANC has been going well and I'm excited to get back to it. This semester I'm teaching:

MMED-6017: Animation for Characters 2
MMED-6018: Project Development Thesis
MMED-3024: Animation MoCap

I'm teaching section 01 of the VGD Anim/MoCap class, with Jeremy Dilks and Eric Wilkins on the other sections. I taught this last winter with Eric teaching the other sections. I'm looking forward to re-teaching this class with Jeremy in the mix to see what he can add to the magic.
