[ #Gnomon ] Gnomon – School of Visual Effects, Games and Animation in Hollywood, California, will begin accepting applications for its first...
Called “the MIT of visual effects” by Fast Company magazine, Gnomon was founded in 1997 by Alex Alvarez, who pioneered the earliest instructional efforts teaching entertainment studios the original 3D hardware and software. For two decades, Gnomon has educated many of the world’s best digital artists with its full-time vocational programs and individual courses for professional enrichment. The school has been both purposeful and unhurried with Gnomon’s baccalaureate efforts to fully ensure the BFA degree program resolutely meets the needs of its students’ career aspirations and is consistent with Gnomon’s goals, objectives, and mission.
Jerome Denjean, Head of CG at Blur Studio in Culver City, California, comments: “Gnomon is known for teaching real-world skills that apply directly to the market, producing graduates ready to work and grow in the VFX and animation space. Blur has hired several Gnomon alumni over the years, and they've all been able to make an impact very shortly after their graduation. It only makes sense that Gnomon would evolve to offer a BFA program and continue to create qualified contributors to this industry.”
