I'm really thinking about going there, I'm visiting it tomorrow. I'm a senior in high school, and I have portfolio made, with a good variety of work in it.
Has any one been there, or does any one go right now?
Should I try and get in? Yay or Nay?
I went to this school and graduated with a BFA in animation from it. Sure it has a lot of problems with holding on to good staff (the 3d dep.) my first year at the school studying 3d, my teacher was learning Maya right along with us, we had one real good modeler as a teacher but he left for pixar, and the other teachers were just Ok. Some of the instructors don’t encourage you but rather are trying to compete within the school of notoriety or fame amongst the students and staff for having the “I AM A HARD ASS AND YOU SHULD LISTEN TO ME OR I WILL FAIL YOU” attude… But with the petty stuff aside it will give you a sold education if you invest the time.(you get what you put in). The class I came up with had some wicked good artist in it…. And some that just sucked… and as far as Atlanta is concerned… well… there are cities much more fun then it, But again if you know when to look if could be fun.
If you have any questions feel free to PM or email me and I will try to answer them.
