Over the last 31 years, Borenstein has worked on a variety of projects including animating for television shows like He-Man, Tom and Jerry and Fat Albert, and feature films like FernGully, Space Jam, and Quest for Camelot. He studied under many of the industry’s “old pros”, and is proud to now be a teacher himself.
“I enjoy studying with my students, as well as mentoring them,” Borenstein explains. One of the things he impresses most upon his Digital Arts students is the necessity of understanding the fundamentals of art and film. “Many of my students return and express to me that working on the fundamentals has set them apart from their other co-workers… I have had the privilege of seeing those students succeed within their chosen careers.”
