I just graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Marketing. Okay, stop looking at me like I'm one of The People Who Killed Traditional Animation.
Prior to that, I was actually gearing up to go into animation and got accepted into the program Algonquin College in Ottawa. However, I bowed down to Chinese familial pressures and never followed through with it. Now that I'm out of school, I'm finding my current line of work (I'm a market research analyst) unfulfilling and am thinking about re-applying for animation.
Can anybody tell me about the programs at Capilano College in Vancouver and Seneca College in Toronto? Both seem affordable and to have a good reputation.
Also, what kind of things do the schools look for in the figure drawings? At Algonquin, it seemed that they really focused on proportions for the entry portfolios, but I saw an evaluation sheet from Sheridan's program where proportion, line quality, character balance, volume and sense of motion were all given equal consideration.
I'm the director of Max the Mutt Animation School in Toronto. I think if you check out our web site, the quality of the student work, the endorsements from animation companies, and grads, and the depth of our curriculum will tell the story. We really are a very unusual school. Its a tough,intimate, and very professional program.
Sorry for the long delay - we've been very busy and I haven' been on the website for a long time! Yes, we have international students. Our academic year runs like university from Septembeer to May.
