Held entirely online, this short and intensive program allows students to grasp the fundamentals of CG art. A great stepping stone to more advanced education, this program helps newer artists identify which part of the industry they'd like to specialize in.
Taught through Think Tank’s interactive platform, Portal, this program combines prerecorded tutorials, collaborative workshops, and personalized instruction to teach students the basic technical and conceptual skills necessary to develop a finished asset.
Along with providing you with a fundamental understanding of how to create CG Art, you’ll also leave with a firm understanding of the potential career opportunities that exist in Film, TV, and Games.
By the end of CG Fundamentals, you’ll be equipped with the skills and credentials to pursue Think Tank’s more advanced programs that begin in the Intermediate term such as CG Asset Portfolio Production & Pre-Production (Online).
This program is for artists looking to take a comprehensive deep dive into the basics of CG remotely. Students must be ready to dedicate at least 40-60 hours a week to their studies. Working while studying is not recommended.
Spend the last part of your program developing a fully rendered 3D asset based on an original 2D concept. These final projects help students determine their preferred specializations and career paths:
Start with the basics. From texturing, lighting, compositing, rendering, asset creation and more…this term is designed to train you in the most essential facets of 3D modeling. In addition, you’ll be introduced to (and ultimately do a deep dive in) the software tools you’ll be using when working in the industry.
The courses you’ll take in CG Fundamentals will emphasize and enhance your organization, flexible thinking and problem solving skills. In just 16 weeks, you’ll become an extremely well-rounded artist, with a strong inkling towards a potential specialization should you choose to continue your education.
