While developing a broad skillset that enables you to pursue a variety of career paths, this program lets you focus on a unique specialization that will help define you as a CG Artist:
You’ll begin this program by diving right back into where your schooling or experience left off. With help from your Think Tank advisors, you’ll be paired with a personal mentor enabling you to produce complex and detail-oriented work in your selected specialization.
With their assistance, you’ll begin to develop a full-term final project that will serve as a high-quality asset preceding the portfolio production stage to come. Workload and expectations are intense, as pre-production on your portfolio and demo reel start alongside advanced courses.
As the foundational piece of the portfolio production process, this mentorship-focused term has you making definitive creative decisions on your pieces–such as finalizing shots, completing lighting, rendering, and compositing to produce what will become the final cut.
Alongside the advice of your instructors and mentors, you’ll take lessons focusing on presentation skills, portfolio packaging, career preparation and job search which will provide invaluable direction on preparing resumés and cover letters, as well as industry practices and ethics.
