I have more than 12 years experience in 2D, animation and digital
arts. I am new to 3D though, and need to learn Maya (Alias, now
Autodesk) to create mainly character animation for TV commercials.

I need to find the best / fastest / most professional and most
adequate way to learn this software to be able to do what I need.

I will need:
- bests trainers / companies
- contact names/emails of professionals in the field willing to train me
- Best books / DVDs for character animation for TVCs in Maya
- Prices of each of the above

P.S.: Money is not really an issue.

Thanks and good luck!
