This one-year, UC 'a-g'-approved course introduces students to animation and visual storytelling. If you like to draw, this course is for you!
Students upload projects to the ACME Animation website and interact with peers in other schools, college animation students and professors, and even industry pros from studios such as Pixar, Disney, Warner Bros, Sony ImageWorks, and DreamWorks.
Every other week, students can get one-on-one, live feedback on their work during a teleconference with pros from various sites in Los Angeles.
A unique benefit of this course is that it allows Capo students to get personalized mentoring on how to enter top college programs and animation-related careers. This instruction comes directly from the colleges and current pros. No more guessing about portfolios!
Former students of this course have been accepted in art/animation programs at the following colleges: CalArts, Ringling College of Art & Design, Savannah College of Art & Design, Chapman University, Academy of Art University, Cal State Fullerton, California College of the Arts, Laguna College of Art and Design, Brigham Young University, Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, and the Art Institute of California.
A grade of B or better will allow you to earn credit toward the animation certificate program at Saddleback College.
