    BlackARK - It's not too late, we have a lot of out of town or international students come here for 3 month to get a good chunk of training and portfolio feedback. Afterwards, they will return home to practice more on what they have learned. Once they get their new portfolio together, they come back again to get more feedback and take advantage of the connections for job hunting.

    Short term housing is pretty easy to find in Pasadena due to two colleges near by. We are also near the metro station, so you have choices to move to other areas as long as it is near another station stops. In Pasadena, it is pretty flat so bike commute is doable for everyday needs. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us by phone or e-mail anytime.

    Deadlyhazard - Thanks~!! Hope to meet you in the near future

    Hi, Kevin.

    I am considering re-taking Vis Com 1 class next year. I am seriously considering going to Art Center for Entertainment Design program in 2013. During my time at CDA I wasn't in the best of the shape, and I barely dragged myself to the class. And I think I took wrong classes, like cartooning and animation-related classes. Fortunately I realized that I don't fit into animation industry.

    Aside from Vis Com 1 class, I also want to take Intro to Digital Painting class. I am seriously lacking in painting skills and I need the basics.

    Hi Gogidolim,

    Art Center is a great school with a lot of tradition and great teachers there. It is also a very focused & expensive school. My advice is to get as much foundations first before you go in and have a very clear idea what you want to get out of it. The 8 terms will fly by really fast so you need to be on top of your career path in order to make it worth the investment you are putting in.

    I am glad you did try out the animation classes early and found out they are not for you. Sometimes you won't know until you try it and it is much cheaper to do it in smaller schools.

    Due to the user name, I am not sure which student you are at the school. But I have a feeling I have most likely run into you before in class. Best of luck on your training and I will probably see you around at CDA or in Art Center in a few years.

    Best,
    Kevin

    Hi Saprissa9,

    Brian Yam, our Vehicle Design teacher is going into crunch mode for his current game project so he needed to take a break for a term. We are planning to have Bryan back in the Summer as long as his work schedule doesn't conflict.

    Currently, there are 3 classes that are very similar to Vehicle Design that are offered this Spring term:

    - Adv. Vis Com with Darren Quach (portfolio review required)

    - Adv Entertainment Project with Andy Chung and Darren Quach (portfolio review required)

    - Modo for Concept Design with Vaughan Ling (Laptop and Modo software required)

    These 3 classes are taught by 3 excellent mechanical/vehicle designers. You can check out their websites to see for yourself. The only down point is that they are all advanced classes gearing toward someone with some previous design experiences.


    Or you can consider taking one of these foundation classes so you can get prepared when the class comes back again in the summer:

    - Vis Com 1: Dynamic Sketching with Peter Han

    - Intro to Perspective with Robert St. Pierre

    - Intro to Digital Painting with Jason Schiere

    These are all great classes to help you gear up for the Vehicle Design class.


    Hope this will help

    Best,
    Kevin

    Thank you!

    That definitely helped Kevin! Thanks a lot! As long as he comes back that's fine. I was kind worried since not many schools in Cali offer that class. Hopefully by the time I go to Cali he's come back to teach.
