Expert guidance from award-winning mentors

Film and game technology evolves rapidly. To be competitive in the entertainment industry you need the most relevant and up-to-date training from experts in the know.

To ensure you get the best education, CG Spectrum mentors are carefully vetted industry professionals who are actively working at major studios. They’re Animators, 3D Modellers, Compositors, Concept Artists and Game Designers who have earned awards and accolades working on your favourite feature films and AAA video games. They’re well established, well connected, and well, incredibly talented.

The moment you enrol at CG Spectrum Animation, VFX & Game Design you’ll be matched with an industry professional dedicated to helping you become your best. 

Whether you sign up for small group classes (max 5 students) or one-on-one mentoring, your mentor will check in with weekly live calls, send recorded video critiques of your assignments, and get you up to speed with studio workflows and client expectations. There’s no better way to learn than from someone who’s been in your shoes.

Our mentors are based all over the world, covering most time zones. Classes are held via Zoom (similar to Skype), so wherever you are, we will connect you with a mentor that works with your availability. Just one of the many benefits of studying online!
