|Creativity and imagination breed the type of students who possess unlimited and inexhaustible talents. As one of these students, you have the ability to take us into a world in which you become the master. Here, we join you on a journey to the end of your story, told passionately though fantastical characters, animated creatures, visual effects, mythical environments, music and lyrics, and cinematic art. Your power lies not in which form of media arts you use, but rather in your creativity, originality, ambition, passion and commitment to art and design.
