What about Schools ?
show user profile  S. Silard
Hey guys , I have 2more years in secondary school , but I already started to find some School/University (Probably about 3D Modeling / Animation - So CG Related things ). I had read many reason to don't go to University at CGSocierty (Its actually a long read right here >http://wiki.cgsociety.org/index.php/The_Unofficial_Truth_about_the_Industry#Link
) , than I found many reason to go , and sometimes freelancer works also require to be graduated at some school , and than what about with some more serious works ???Ok some peoples really reach something without degree .

Another reason my parents also want me to go to some kind of University ... uhhhh this thing just starts to annoy me . That schools are so far a way . and many of them is just expensive ...(Those 38K schools , like VFS) .

Ok there is one school in my country (Serbia), in capital city , let me show the picture inside that :
Nice 19" TFT monitors huh ? And the invisible graphic tablet also looks cool :P .

So I really don't know where I should go .. I heard bad things about CalArts also ... Academy of Art University looks ok for now (Liked the Game Design Program) , but really don't know yet the how much it cost , but guess its also around 30K $....

So I'm ask your opinion guys , what you suggest to me ? And what you know about these things ?

Thanks

Congrats, you found my signature.

This place looks sharp and not super expensive.. After I get done with my 4 year degree at my university I was playing around with the idea of going here for a couple of years..

They specialize in Maya and not 3ds Max, but I don't think Maya is going anywhere soon.

@9krausec Thanks for reply ! :) I don't get what place you talked about in your first sentence .
Btw that school what you had suggested looks ok . I never had thought about NewZeland . Anyway , find some strange thing and that is :
FEES: $8,950 (NZD) | $23,000 (international) - per academic year

That's for example the Game Developer Program .... is that mean I have to pay slightly 3 times more as I'm gonna be International student ???

Other Maxforumers don't seems very helpful at the moment :/ ....

Not invisible graphic tablets, only gray as tables and as old as the monitors

a single render tops any paper from any university in the land of 3d if thats what you're after. If you are looking for being schooled tho and cant manage it on your own+internet then why not

My advice is to study an Art or Computer science degree and teach yourself 3D.
