"CG Spectrum got me my dream job!"

After a lot of searching, I found CG Spectrum. The curriculum is wonderful, the mentors are fantastic and the school is very accommodating. One of the things that impressed me the most was they actually go through the files of your assignments. This contributes tremendously towards understanding your mistakes. The mentors are extremely helpful, encouraging, kind and, most importantly, always available for help.

"It’s your career success that matters."

I applied to some companies with my updated reel and get the chance to be hired by a small studio named Dwarf-Labs where I did some animations for a CG commercial. Then I was hired by Ubisoft where I worked for the last release of one of their big franchise, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate!"
