Sheridan College: One of the Finest Animation Institutes

Animation is a very detail-oriented job that requires imagination and a burning passion for drawing, which makes it all the more exciting and attractive. I have done much research on this career and have come to the conclusion that out of all arts-oriented educational institutions out there, Sheridan College would be the best place to begin my quest.

Sheridan College is considered to be one of the finest animation-teaching institutes. It is distinguished for the quality and profoundness of the courses it offers, as well as for the high percentage of employment enjoyed by its graduates. Film-producing companies from all over Canada visit Sheridan to recruit promising talents for their studios. American movie directors also consider Sheridan a unique source of highly-skilled animators. Many modern world-famous movies, such as 'Star Wars' or 'Lord of the Rings' have had former Sheridan students working on them. In fact, you may probably find a Sheridan graduate sitting in the production crew of every motion picture released onto the screens today! John Minnis, for example, received an Academy Award for his short film 'Charade', while Steve Williams is known for developing computer animation methods for 'Terminator 2' and 'Jurassic Park.'

The achievements of Sheridan's graduates are truly remarkable; however, their success is much owed to the guidance they have received from the institute's erudite professors. Sheridan's teachers must be true experts in their job - for only the dedication of experts would be able to produce so many professionals and keep the passion for their subject aflame. Some of the teachers are also renowned for film-making achievements, e.g. James Straus' contribution to 'Jumanji' and 'Forrest Gump' and his nomination for an Academy Award in Visual Effects for 'Dragonheart'.

Overall, Sheridan College is a highly-respected educational institution, considered elite among the animation studio recruiters. To me, it seems like the perfect place to start off!
