Good work bro!

i focus on the composition and framing of my images and the silhouettes of my objects more than on the quality or complexity of the models or materials. http://geometrydashfree.com/

The Rookies Announce "Best Creative Media & Entertainment Schools in the World 2017"
1 October, 2017

On September 26 The Rookies announces the “Global Rankings Report: Best Creative Media & Entertainment Schools in the World 2017”.

Put together with the help of Oscar-winning judges – like Joe Letteri from Weta Digital – and 60 more equally influential industry veterans from around the world, the report ranks schools across five categories including, Best Animation Schools; Best Digital Illustration Schools; Motion Graphics Schools; Game Design & Development Schools and Visual Effects Schools.

The report’s findings are based on a methodology that assesses the quality and performance of student work who enter mentor and awards platform, The Rookies.

“We feel that traditional school rankings that include peer and employer reviews, faculty-to-student ratio, citations and other data are not adequate when ranking the best creative schools,” co-founder of The Rookies, Andrew McDonald, explains.

“This might work in an industry that follows a more-traditional career path, however, when it comes to technical and creative roles like visual effects, feature animation and games, it’s a lot more complicated,” he adds.

At a time when studios report a lack of skilled students applying for entry-level roles, Alwyn Hunt, co-founder of The Rookies, reveals, “We have students from all over the world ask The Rookies about the best schools. It’s crucial for reports like these that highlight to students where they should study”.
