The Los Angeles Film School has added two degree offerings for students interested in working in video games and animation. Begining this September, students will be able to sign up for an associate of science degree in game development or an associate of science degree in computer animation. The new degrees will join the school’s recently introduced associate of science degree in film.
The Game Development associate’s program will cover the process of creating a video game from the initial stages of game structure and preproduction to advanced coding, artificial intelligence and game engine creation.
The Computer Animation associate’s program will allow students to learn an animation pipeline like those typically used throughout the industry to create art and special effects for games, television and film. Students will get training in advanced modeling software to create virtual models, characters and visual effects for a variety of multimedia applications.
‘These degrees are a natural addition to the curriculum at The Los Angeles Film School,’ comments Los Angeles Film School CEO Diana Derycz-Kessler. ‘Game developers and computer animators have stories to tell, much like our filmmakers.’
Founded in 1999, The Los Angeles Film School is located in the heart of Hollywood at the historic RCA Building on Sunset Boulevard. The private post-secondary educational institution boasts a faculty of industry professionals instructing students on the craft of filmmaking in state-of-the-art facilities.
