Entertainment Design

The Entertainment Design concentration focuses on traditional and digital art techniques to create life-like design elements for film, video games or marketing and design firms. The ability to transform verbal and written directions into visual representations of characters and scenes is emphasized. Students also take courses in drawing, painting, illustration, character design and concept art for a deeper understanding of visual art skills and techniques and how they fit into a production pipeline. An understanding of how things are built within film, video games and other animation projects combined with great imagination; is at the heart of the Entertainment Design Degree Program. Our students also have the opportunity to collaborate with other college departments, in a project-based, comprehensive educational experience.
