When is the second semester starting exactly?
The next term should start around mid Jan. 2008. The exact date is not confirmed yet, but I will keep you guys updated as the date gets set.
You probably don't accept international students, do you?
Hi Blue Bed,
Thanks for your interest in our program. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer international student visas at this point. But as long as you can come over with a visitor's visa, the classes is open for anyone over 18 years of age.
To take the classes there are couple options:
1) Take a summer vacation and chain up some classes around the LA area. There are some great Entertainment design classes and teachers around that you can take advantage of on your visit here:
- Gnomon School of Visual Effects
(great CG classes and design workshops)
- LA Academy of Figurative Arts
(Traditional drawing and painting classes)
- Jordu Schell Studio
(Creature Design and film make-up/maquette sculptures)
- Concept Design Academy
(Design Workshops & Character design classes)
- Animation Union
(Figure drawing classes with Glen Vilppu and Karl Gnass)
The expensive part will be finding a place to rent and a car to get around with. Car is a must around LA.
2) Some other international students I know are getting their student visa through Pasadena City College. While they are there, they take classes on the side at the above places to supplement their studies. Around the campus you should be able to find a lot of rentals for students and they are located in the same city as the Concept Design Academy & Art Center College of Design.
Hope this will help and feel free to e-mail me if you have more detail questions.
I dont usually say I feel jealous, but damn, im jealous of all you guys in CA - so much cool stuff to attend!
This looks fantastic Kevin!
Oh man!!! I so would love to enrolled if i had the cash to live abroad,
man this thread both lifted my spirits and depressed the heck out out
of me, at the same time and Oh dear the flesh tones the dam flesh tones!!

In the this workshop, Khang will cover the basics of perspective layout, scale, practical design ideas, style variations and rendering techniques he uses in creating Vehicles and Robots for his current projects.
This is a great class for both beginning and intermediate artists who is interested in strengthening their vehicle / props design for entertainment. During class, Khang will share his working process and take a vehicle or robot design from beginning to finish.

I have two quick announcements to make. One is a reminder that Creature Design 1 on Sat morning 9:30AM~12:30PM is open for enrollment!! It is a ten week course starting on Feb. 9th, 2008.
Second is that we have a new instructor, Jerad Marantz for this coming semester to take over the class for Anthony Francisco.
Anthony will be taking a break this term, due to a full work schedule. He plan to continue to swing by the class as a guest speaker from time to time.
Jerad's design background came from both film and game productions. He have been working for studios such as Stan Winston, ADI, Climax Games, , NCsoft and Aaron Sims Studio. Some his recent projects include "I am Legend" and "Tabula Rasa".
Jeard have a great passion for creature design and a great demo teacher at showing and explaining his work process. This is a great class for anyone who is interested in improving or expanding their creature designs skills for either film development or game production. Previous figure drawing experience is strongly recommended to help you get the most out of the class.
If you have any questions about the class or sign us please feel free to contact us anytime.
