like i mentioned above, i am a senior in the digital media program at ucf. there are some great oppurtunities available with the program. however i have been told that if it is visual fx, california is where it's at. you can certainly get education here in florida, but that could hurt you somewhat for getting your foot in the door. if you make contacts and work hard you can do well here.

I recently took a trip down to florida to check out the DAVE school with my girlfriend, and i was very very much impressed. Like previously stated, it's a 1 year program, but from what I was able to gather, it was extremely intensive, plus, it's all real world stuff. Working with actual clients, working in actual production teams, and working with industry professionals makes it an easy choice for me instead of other graphics programs.

Also, from my tour, it was made very clear that they take care of you after graduating. I'm not just talking about placement, but free courses if new software comes out, new professors, or if you just want to spruce up your portfolio or reel, as well as hosting of your reel, as well as using their facilities for personal projects.

I actually have the application on my desk as we speak.
You may want to email or PM proton, as he can probably point you in the right direction if you need more clarification or have any other questions.

(keep in mind I don't still work for the school :P )

thatís very true, at any point in your life after graduating you can come back to the school and retake the whole program of just one block. I know several people who have done that years after I thought I would never see them again

as far as placement goes, my friend who is graduating an about 2 weeks already has an internship at one of the better known LW houses in LA which (with his talent and ability to learn quickly) will most likely turn into a job pretty quick. That has happened to just about every grad who has found an internship somewhere.

The school is very well connected in the VFX industry. I owe the work that I get all the time to that relation ship.

Where did you end up going? I noticed this post was from 2006 and it is now 2007.
