Here’s an article that ran in the UNL student newspaper about Professor Steve Kolbe at the Johnny Carson School. Kolbe is offering classes in digital animation, story boarding, and digital production. He’s been working in the field since the early days of computer animation.

“I was probably one of the only people working with 3-D in Omaha in the early 90s,” he said.

The technology was so new and unreliable many studios didn’t want to bother with it. Kolbe would spend nights sleeping by computers as they rendered images. When each frame was finished, the program would make an audible “click.” If the program stopped its rhythmic clicking, Kolbe would be awakened and fix the problem.”
