After a recent visit to VanArts, the British Columbia Council for International Education (BCCIE) published an article highlighting why Vancouver schools, VanArts in particular, are "fueling our creative sector."  Featuring quotes from Head of Visual Effects for Film & Television and Game Art & Design Wade Howie, and VanArts President Alan Phillips, the article provides a considered view of the local media arts landscape.  

Vancouver one of the world's top places to study media arts. It comes as no surprise that Vancouver, known to some as Hollywood North, produces many of the world’s top talents in media arts. As a recent Globe and Mail article reports, Vancouver is home to “over 800 companies in digital film, animation and visual effects, video games, mobile content and applications, and e-learning.” There are plenty of industry experts to teach students. The media arts sector here is huge, generating $3 billion in revenue annually.

We thank BCCIE for their visit and encourage everyone interested in pursuing their dreams of working in the media arts to contact our admissions advisors and get started now!
