View Full Version : Animation MA programs? (For 2D animators)

09 September 2009, 02:28 PM
Hey everyone!

My name's Amit, i'm a 2D/Flash Animator from Israel. I have a BFA in Animation and now I'm looking for a good place to study an MA in Animation somewhere in The World (Israel has got no animation MA programs and I'm trying to leave this place for good).

I already applied to the NFTS in the UK, and even got to attend the Animation Direction workshop with 14 more people (8 of them were chosen, not including me). so now I have an entire year to look for more places to study in for the September 2010 semester.

generally I'd rather study in Europe since i'm also an EU citizen (I also have a Slovak republic citizenship). but now I'm trying to learn more about my options and even though it's costly, I would definetly want to try the best that the US and Canada have to offer and If there's an option, Japan, australia or new zealand are always welcome.

I already got into the London Metropolitan University's Animation MA for September 2010, but as far as I know it's a new program so I won't rush into it without knowing if it's worth a damn.

so..just consider these points:

1. it has to be an MA program (I already have a BFA)
2. there has a 2D option, I mean, not a school that deals mainly or only in 3D.
3. It HAS to be in ENGLISH. (I don't want to start struggling with a new language right now)
4. it has to be good :)

Thanks in Advance

if you're wondering about my style (which probably should effect my choice), here's my youtube channel with some of my animation projects:

Hope you like'em

Check out the SJSU Animation program and contact the advisors. They put a lot of emphasis in 2D animation.
