At the end of my senior year in high school, I didn’t really have a plan for college. Villa’s admissions counselors gave a presentation at my school showing the different courses and majors offered. I had been an artist all my life and the animation program caught my attention. I was really excited about the small class sizes and small campus compared to many other local colleges.
During my time at Villa, I was introduced to 3D modeling and digital sculpting and knew right away that it was what I wanted to do after graduation. Because I had chosen to focus more on modeling, my professors gave me more opportunities to pursue it in my projects and outside of class.
I began professionally freelancing in my last year at Villa and the instructors were extremely helpful in answering all the questions I had about working as a 3D artist. Even after graduation, they faculty has done so much to help start the 3D design studio I run today. They’ve given me leads on new clients, asked for my assistance on projects, I’ve even been given the opportunity to guest lecture at the school. I couldn’t have come as far as I have without all of their help.
Villa is a great choice for anyone interested in animation, they’re always adapting the courses around the industry and helping each student better themselves in their chosen path in animation.
