STUDENT SUCCESS STORIES

Subhaan Asif FX Artist - Luma

I started CG Spectrum with no experience in Visual FX. Initially, the thought was quite daunting as I hadn't done much in the field prior. In my opinion, the education with CG Spectrum is the closest to giving me actual industry experience since I’m working alongside an industry vet whilst being taught the fundamentals of my trade. I can comfortably say I have more of a "peer to peer" relationship rather than "teacher to student", making it really easy to share my work and expect solid criticism.

Lawrence Zalasky Layout TD, Batman vs Superman

"The quality of the instruction combined with instructors willingness to go above and beyond what most students probably expect is what makes CG Spectrum the best. Anyone looking for small class sizes with instructors that are all working professionals in the industry who really care about their students would be happy with CG Spectrum. As a student, if you're willing to put the work in, listen to instruction and be honest with yourself and your work, you will succeed."

Phil Minter Previs/Postvis Artist, World of Warcraft

"I have been able to develop a more efficient work flow needed for the studio world. CG Spectrum has been an instrumental part of my growth as an animator, helping me sharpen my skills, acquire new ones and strengthen my character animation abilities. This is an invaluable experience for anyone looking to learn animation or take their skills to the next level."

Alan Blackwell Concept Artist, Transformers Battle Tactics

"I came out with about 3 finished pieces which directly led to me being picked up by DeNA Studios. My mentor took me through some homework exercises related to getting my portfolio quality kicked up a notch. We also ran through some more basic thinking behind image creating such as composition, thumbnailing etc. In the end I came out with about 3 finished pieces which directly led to me being picked up by DeNA Studios Canada late 2012 as a Junior Concept Artist. I really appreciated the time I got to work with my mentor during those sessions."
