Yeah, West Coast is Cal Arts and East Coast...idk, RISD is pretty up there in terms of their animation program.I dont post enough :\
RISD maybe for their traditional animation department, but their computer animation program is outdated and weak. that's the reason i didn't even bother finishing my application for RISD. for east coasters looking into computer art/animation, id look into Ringling, SCAD, and SVA. They all have very strong computer arts programs. Also, for those of you who think traditional animation is what you want, think hard about it before you go that path. Lots and lots of people here at SVA who originally were in traditional animation switched or want to switch to computer animation.
I pretty much agree with everything mnwfi said. For whatever its worth, RISD was my first choice when i got out of high school.. i got in and couldnt afford it. They offered very little in scholarship and halp. Start savin up. Also Rhode Island.. cmon who the fuck wants to live there!!!!
I applied to Ringling also, i was on the verge of pulling the trigger and then found that Sarasota(?) is too sleepy of a town. Its a good school tho.. i believe ed skudder went there and that dude is da bombbb. I dont know much about SVA.. but you can ask Dan that. he seems pretty happy. And its NYC, cant beat that.
Anyways thats my 3 cents. All of which i need back because I can use it towards my financial aid at RISD.
