Weekly Quote: Ryan Woodward

Weekly quotes come from BYU faculty members who are regarded by their students as being both spiritually strengthening and intellectually enlarging.

“Maybe one of my real purposes as a teacher is not necessarily to teach the process of animation, but the principles behind a successful career in animation. … And so I started sharing experiences with the students. I started sharing with them times when I was laid off in between productions, because they all struggle with that exact same fear. And what do you do? … Well, I get on my mountain bike, I go pray to God that another animation film is around the corner, that’s what I did. And … when I started sharing those experiences and how they relate to the gospel, boy, their eyes just got huge, and they soaked up the information, and they became more and more receptive to that kind of a teaching of personal experience.”

Ryan Woodard, Department of Visual Arts
