COMPANIES THAT HIRE OUR STUDENTS
CarlosCGMA is an excellent and affordable option for aspiring artists and professionals who want to build upon their skills. I took advantage of many classes during my Master studies at the University of Hertfordshire in order to develop my Master Thesis.
JackCGMA helped set up a strong understanding of anatomy, shape, and form which has benefited all my work as of now.
IsabelleI took Storyboarding for Animation, and not only did I gain a greater knowledge of cinematic storytelling, I feel like I gained a better understanding of what professionals and studios look out for in a storyboard artist.
RomainBy learning from great teachers, I was able to increase my skills and artistic sense, as well as level up my demo reel and portfolio. It was a great way to specialize in a specific field and get familiar with industry-standard software.
SonjaCGMA offers amazing classes that are fun and informative, even for seasoned artists. Clinton's UE4 Modular Environment class taught me everything I needed to know to be able to branch out from film and also work in VR and now AAA games.
HectorCGMA helps me to improve my facial rigging skills and inspire myself to work hard and achieve my goals like my instructor Wade Ryer.
