The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) has been named "Best Motion Graphics School" by The Rookies in the 2017 official rankings of The Best Creative Schools in the World. The Rookies rankings are based on over 1,800 submissions of portfolios and student work from more than 500 universities internationally.
Each submission was reviewed by a judging panel that included Joe Letteri, Academy Award winner for Best Visual Effects in two "Lord of the Rings" movies, "Avatar" and "King Kong," on the following criteria: creative skills, technical skills, presentation, variety of skills, raw talent and employment potential.
SCAD's accredited motion media design degrees are offered in Atlanta, Hong Kong, Savannah and online via eLearning. Motion media design students learn from expert, credentialed faculty who are practitioners as well as educators, and partner with top names in the industry on real-world projects, including a recent collaboration with FOX Sports for the opening visual for the Super Bowl. Coursework cultivates creative expression while emphasizing vital production skills and techniques.
