There are many places worldwide to study computer animation. We take great pride in offering what we believe is the best program available.
Here are a few reasons why Think Tank Training Centre is different:
Very Small Class Sizes
Our classrooms are set up for twelve students only. Thus students get a tremendous amount of one-on-one with their instructors and get to know their classmates very well.
Dedicated Work Stations
Each student is assigned a state-of-the-art workstation that will be theirs for the duration of the semester. Any time they come to school it will be waiting for them. Students do not have access to one another’s workstations. Students regularly leave iPods, wallets, cameras, and even money on their desks. Theft is unheard of.
This industry is constantly changing and evolving. Better and faster techniques are being adopted every month. The only way you can really learn what you need to learn to be competitive is by learning from professionals. At Think Tank we only hire professionals. That means the tips and tricks our instructors use at work, are the same tips and tricks they bring back to the classroom.
The Best Equipment and Software
Think Tank workstations are outfitted with full HD dual widescreen monitors. We teach the latest industry software. Think Tank has its own “render-farm”. These days CG workstations need to be robust. Ours can handle anything students can throw at them.
In the final semester students are assigned personal mentors from local studios. If you want to work on environments for EA, we do what we can to hire someone from EA that works as a lead environment modeler to coach you through your demo reel. He/she meets with you each week and critiques, teaches new techniques, and generally guides you to a successful demo reel.
Once you finish your year with us, if for some reason you don’t get a job, you may stay and continue to study for free with a dedicated station for as long as you want. Nobody else offers that kind of support.
At this time we have very high placement for our graduate students. Committing to an expensive CG training program is one of the most expensive challenging endeavors you will face your entire life. Do your homework. Ask questions and demand good answers. At Think Tank we want students to leave us “employed” and happy they made the right choice.
