The Hollywood Reporter names Sheridan to its list of Top 10 Visual Effects Schools
For the second year in a row, The Hollywood Reporter has named Sheridan to its annual roster of best visual effects schools around the world. The ranking is based on the results from surveys with recruiters, industry professionals and sources in academia.
The international institutions included on the list reflects the increasingly global nature of the VFX business, with Canada leading the way, states the August 6 article. Toronto, for example, is home to many visual effects studios including the award-winning company Mr. X, where more than 70 Sheridan alumni work.
Sheridan Visual Effects program alumni have gone on to work on projects in film and television including The Shape of Water, Game of Thrones, Dumbo, Deadpool 2, Vikings, and Blade Runner 2049.
The program is a 10-month post-graduate certificate that runs annually from September to June. It blends art and technology using the latest software and state-of-the-art equipment. Students are given the opportunity to collaborate with their peers and faculty in Visual Effects as well as students in the Advanced Film and Television program.
“We continually strive to deliver a premier learning experience at Sheridan so it’s a tremendous honour to see this program recognized again on this scale,” said Angela Stukator, Associate Dean of Animation and Game Design. “It’s truly a testament to the talents of our faculty, staff and students.”
Other schools to make The Hollywood Reporter’s list include ArtFX in Montpellier, France, the Vancouver Film School in British Columbia and Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California.
