View Full Version : Any experience w/The LA Film School for computer animation?

10 October 2011, 12:09 AM
Does anyone have any experience with The Los Angeles Film School? I am looking for a school to persue computer animation, preferably one that doesn't require I win the lottery in order to pay for it.

I've taken some basic college art classes such as drawing and 2D design at a couple local colleges, but I don't have any degrees.

I am currently located in Atlanta, GA, but I expect to have to move to the LA area at least at some point, whether it be to go to school, to find a job, or both, and I expect to have to pay for some student loans as well.

Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated,

Due to no response here, as well as no email response from the school since I emailed them 2-3 weeks ago, and the fact that they've only had their animation program since 2009, I am looking at other school options, particularly Gnomon.

As for Gnomon's 1, 2, and 3-year programs, what would you recommend? I've had some traditional art classes at a local college, but never completed an AA or any other degree. Does one (or all) of Gnomon's programs include traditional art classes, or only focused, computer-related classes? I want to do 3D computer animation/CGI for film, or possibly for video games, but I'm just not sure if the 1- or 2-year programs would be sufficient.

Thanks for any info or suggestions,

I am currently attending LAFS and will be graduating in December. Do you know what specific area of CG you want to focus in? I'm focusing on lighting and rendering, and I had about 3-4 months of class that focused on that, and then private study afterwards. The biggest thing I like about LAFS is the price compared to other similar schools. You pay less since it's an A.S, but you are still their for almost 2 years.
