College Education?

Postby 8Daren on 03/7/2016, 11:08 am

Hello :D

I've watched your tutorials here for many years, and you have inspired me to make visual effects my career. I just turned 20 last month and I'm hoping to go to college on the west coast. I would really appreciate any input on possible colleges and degrees for this field, also any other career advice would be awesome.

Thank you,
- Daren

If you are into compositing, photography and art.

For motion graphics, design and art.

For doing VFX, math, physics, programming.

Hi Daren, you just need to google top animation schools on the west coast. These three are on my top list:
California Institute of the Arts
ArtCenter College of Design
City College of San Francisco

If you ask me, I would recommend City College of San Francisco (though I put it the last one). They offer Certificates in Visual Media Production or Digital Animation.

Hmm, that wouldn't be such a bad idea. I'll check out the City College of San Francisco after COVID-19 gets eradicated.

By the way, just in case anyone here owns a truck, my cousin Lenny is offering up a few fox shocks. Feel free to chat me up for more info.
