View Full Version : CG school recommendation
06-27-2008, 02:20 AM
I'm sorry if such topics already exist, but I couldn't find any. Anyways, I consider continueing CG education abroad (USA, Canada, UK, Australia or any other English speaking country). I know Gnomon is the best (correct me if I'm wrong), but I'd like to know if there are alternatives that are just as good and/or are easier to get in (i'm talking visa and finances). My interests are general CG (Maya or 3ds max, ZBrush a must, modeling, texturing, lights, cameras, rendering, animation, simulation, compositing etc.).

Please do a search ahead of time. We have way too many of these posts!
VOILA! Threads about schools! Took me a couple seconds to search them! (http://forums.cgsociety.org/search.php?searchid=602161)
By the way you have some amazing artwork, I don't see any reason to go to school.;)

Gnomon from my knowledge is awesome, although I've not been, but is also quite expensive. In london there is escape studios who I've heard some really good things about, I was on their site the other day and found this http://www.escapestudios.com/en_GB/school/news/skillset-film-visual-effects.html. Its basically that they are doing one of their full time 18 week VFX courses for free, which I would have loved to apply to if my situation at the moment was different.
Hope that helps a bit

I get this when I click on your link "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.".
Thanks for your comment, but frankly I think that my artwork sucks ass :wise: .

Your portfolio looks great.
It's all relative - whether to go to school in the first place, and if you go - whether your ROI (return on investment) is going to be high enough.
