To reflect the nature of the 3D industry, students have the opportunity to focus on all major areas of the 3D production pipeline. The major ones are given below.
Learn the basics of a 3D pipeline to gain insight into the different areas of production.
Apply your 3D skills to storytelling in pre-visualization class as you further advance your knowledge of the craft.
Focus on animation, modeling & VFX while you plan your final reel in the pre-production classes.
Enter into the studio component of the program and start production on your demo reel.
Engage in the production process as you iterate and refine your shots. One-on-one feedback and regular group reviews make for a true studio experience.
Light, render and composite as you put the final tweaks on your project for industry.
Send samples of your work that include life (preferred), still, or character drawings, and 3D computer work (maximum 12 pieces total).
When you apply to the 3D Animation & Visual Effects program, we expect that you have some 3D experience.
If you don’t have sufficient 3D experience you may be given conditional acceptance based on the strength of a combination of your other computer artwork (e.g. Flash, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.) and your drawing skills.
