We love questions, almost as much as we love providing answers. Here are a few samplings of what we're typically asked, along with our responses:

Why are these skills relevant today?

There's never been a better time to be a well-trained 3D Artist. The Game industry is growing and offers stable employment for artists trained in craft and the latest software.

Who will I be taking classes with?

Our students are artists, engineers transition into the arts, people just out of college, people who couldn't afford to go to college, vfx artists, baristas - artists who, just like you, have a passion for creating environments for the film and game industry.

What can I expect to accomplish by the end of this course?

By the end of the course, you will have:

  • Completed two primary portfolio projects.
  • Learned about 3d concept creation from experienced game artists.
  • Prepared yourself with the foundational knowledge you need to begin a career of continuous learning.
What are my financing options for a bootcamp?

We don't want financial obstacles to get in the way of you achieving your dream job so we offer payment plans for those who qualify. Note, you must first be accepted into the program before applying for financing.
