Program Description:

At SCAD, students learn the art and craft of visual effects through the integration of the latest technology with creative artistry. SCAD provides a unique combination of computer programming and technical instruction built upon a traditional fine arts foundation. Students majoring in visual effects may choose a minor in a complementary subject such as film and television, technical direction, architecture, photography or storyboarding. Students work individually and collaboratively within a framework of cooperative activity that reflects the real-world experience of film and digital entertainment production. SCAD production facilities offer both undergraduate and graduate students access to high-end, industry-standard digital tools including Adobe CS5 Master Collection, Autodesk Maya, Nuke, Mental Ray, RenderMan and Houdini. In addition to a high-speed network of Linux, OS X and PC workstations, students use a large file server and powerful render farm and have 24-hour access to computer labs. SCAD’s cutting-edge computer systems are complemented by two green-screen stages, HD cameras and a Vicon motion capture studio to provide students with a complete digital production facility. The M.A. and M.F.A. in visual effects are offered at SCAD Savannah and SCAD Atlanta.
