The schools are chosen based on the quality and performance of works submitted by their students.
The Rookies, a platform aimed to help digital artists get discovered, has revealed the list of the best creative media and entertainment schools and colleges where VFX artists, 3D animators, concept artists, designers, and game developers can hone their skills and kickstart their careers in the industry.
According to The Rookies, "traditional school rankings – that include peer and employer reviews, faculty-to-student ratio, citations and other data – are not adequate when ranking the best creative schools."
"This might work in industries with more traditional career paths, however, when it comes to technical and creative roles, such as Visual Effects, Feature Animation and Games, it’s a lot more complicated," it explained.
This is why this year, the list of best schools is chosen based on the quality and excellence of the student portfolios submitted to The Rookies' judge panel between March 2022 and May 2022 as, according to the platform, this approach reflects the recruitment interview process the best way.
The Rookies analyzed a dataset of nearly 3,000 students with individual scores and based on the results of this research, awarded a final score to each school.
Among the schools that entered the list are New3dge, Savannah College of Art and Design, SCHOOL-ING, Gnomon, Ringling College of Art and Design, Think Tank Training Centre, and more.
