Hello everyone. This episode has touched me greatly, and I felt the need to share some of my experiences and wisdom with you all.
I strongly believe that a good school experience is 50% school and 50% student. That said, I'm sure even westwood college, who couldn't even market themselves correctly, has at least a slight chance of churning out a success story.
I have a Degree and 2 years in a school and could not find work.
-I got out i 2007 during the Writers strike
But the first red flag i notice was we were late first year getting life drawing class and we get new teachers left and right.
From when we started to finish, the entire administrative and teacher staff including the deen was replaced expect our storyboard teacher who was a student trying to learn new 3d animation. That used to work in the insdusty on storyboards such as Franklin the Turtle and the Barenstein Bears.
I seen the video about gaming schools a while back (Kind of funny since my current "University" is the reason I found you in the first place. After watching the video, and already started my second year by the time I found it. I'm worried that I have made a HUGE mistake for not doing enough research before choosing the right school. I did research different schools but maybe was a little "Too quick on the trigger" when choosing my current school "Fullsail" Since they are like in the video..
Hey all, so my question is a little bit (and by a little, I mean a lot) different.
I don't have a highly technical mind, and design/programming/etc. are not for me, at all. However, I have a huge passion for music and am at a 4 year university currently working on a music degree. Does anyone know if there are any game design institutes that have a program focused on designing music specifically for games in a master's/post-grad setting?
Sorry if I possibly NecroBumped this thread, but I think it's important that I thank the Extra Credits crew. Originally, I was dead set on going to a college which wasn't as great as it thought it would be, and with out the EC Crew, I think my future would've been ruined. Right now, I'm searching for colleges that would be perfect for game developers, so far, I've found a college that can help me out with that, I just have to see if it's Regionally Accredited and such. Anyway, I only wish to announce that I'm truly thankful that the EC crew exists, because without them, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be getting into a big company. So far, I AM in my final semester of Intermediate School, and I will be entering my first year of high school rather shortly. However, I usually like being prepared, which is why I am looking into colleges. I've always had a dream that I'd become a world renowned game developer (much like Keiji Inafune, a game developer I look up to) and work at Capcom Of America, and possibly branch off and maybe work on my own company.
