... what's it like?
Been thinking of getting into 3d animation, and naturally I'm curious about Gnomon's 3d program (looking to get into the 2 year one, not the 3 year or the entertainment design program).
I've poked around the internet for reviews, the Gnomon school website itself, but haven't found much except some pretty vague posts. I've also tried contacting some people on their "alumni success story" section but unlike the next-gen atelier's students/alumni, they never replied back. So if any of y'all are on this site, tell me what the school is like! (or message me instead).
I'd like to hear some first hand accounts of the place before I choose to apply.
How are the instructors and the students (equally important because if the students are shit that does not bode well for any school, whether its art or not)?
How are classes and the facilities like?
What type of assignments do they usually give?
Are there internship opportunities, gallery shows and career services?
Are all of the above helpful, or was it all an utter waste of cash/loans?
And last but not least, what are living costs in Hollywood like:
how much for a studio, 1 BR, et?
Is public transportation available/is a car absolutely neccessary?
Are places like groceries and pharmacies easily accessible?
Thanks in advance.
