Illustrators use graphical representation to both bring imagination to life and to freshly interpret the world around us. As visual artists, they must learn to express their ideas in application and collaboration, learning to work with businesses, filmmakers, architects, fashion designers, authors, and many other creative individuals. At the New York Film Academy, aspiring illustrators can learn how to harness their passion and apply their skills to real-world applications in graphic design and 3D animation and visual effects.
NYFA is dedicated to developing the next generation of visual artists. Illustrators can advance their goals through one of NYFA’s programs, below:
Visual artists interested in relating their passion to communication, narrative structure, storytelling, motion graphics, and the integration of design and film, will gain practical experience at New York Film Academy’s Graphic Design School. Work with renowned graphic designers, learn to use industry-standard software and equipment, and gain access to real design studios and professional-grade facilities.
Visual artists and illustrators at New York Film Academy’s 3D Animation & Visual Effects School gain professional-level experience as they create their own original work with industry-standard software such as Mudbox, ZBrush, Nuke, and Maya — which has been used in every Oscar-winning film for best visual effects since 1997.
