Hi, well I am currently an art foundation student in Univ.IL, got accepted into Industrial design...
but i want to transfer to ACCD
my problem is idk which major i gotta go into
what i want to do for my job is theme park design, hopefully walt disney imagineering
ACCD rep said that if i want to do themepark, i prolly gotta go to environmental design
but im sure i can get into themepark industry with entertainment design, too
also i gotta think about "what if no disney" case...what if i dont get into disney, isn't entertainment design more useful and prospective than environmental design.......???
Good that you're looking into all this - what school is ACCD? IMO entertainmnet design vs. environmental design are close enough to not really matter - basicaly so much overlap there it is up to you to focus on what aspects you're more interested in. If it is environmental design you'll want to study architecture and traditional landscape painting a bit more. But I do think theme park design leans more toward large scale environment, architecture and interior design.
Disney isn't the only game in town of course - and may not be the best employer (since everyone wants be there). Landmark Entertainment is actually much larger I believe - and probably has more divisions. Hope that helps!
