INTRODUCTION TO LEVEL 2

Visual Development Master courses are available both online in live streaming and on-site.

 

The online live streaming version is the same integral experience as the on-site version with the same features, including access to IDEA's recruiting services and to recruiting events as well. It will include dedicated platforms and channels to facilitate the delivery of assignments and communication with both your fellow students and your teachers.

Students that prefer the on-site experience will be able to immerse themselves in the Italian lifestyle and enjoy together with their colleagues and teachers all the museum visits and life drawing sessions that we periodically organize. Students on-site have also access to the school facilities to study and ask support in person.

 

 

The Visual Development Master LEVEL 2 aims at deepening the educational path of students coming from the Visual Development Master LEVEL 1 with 9 additional months in which students will acquire the necessary tools which will help them defining their own career path in the entertainment field. Students will build their professional portfolio under the guidance of top concept artists and internationally renowned studio directors such as Lip Comarella (director at Passion Picture - concept artist for Luma Pictures), Jim Moore (senior Concept artist at Lucas Film) and Nacho Molina ( Visual Development Artist and Illustrator for Locksmith Animation, Blizzard, Games Workshop , and Keyframe  Illustrator for Sony Pictures Animation).

The course is directed by Anthony Christov, art director and production designer at Pixar Studios. During these 9 months, students will be able to build a high quality and professional portfolio, specializing themselves in their chosen area of expertise, in order to become valuable resources in the animation, videogames and illustration field.

With the help of teachers and staff, students will also work on a personal project which will be their focus of study for the second half of the course. 

 

Important: students who have not attended Master Level 1 can still submit their portfolio to evaluate their entrance at Master LVL 2
