Here's what it's like in the Commercial Animation Program...

This is a documentary by filmmaker, Kendra Howland on the two year, classical animation and design program at Capilano University, North Vancouver Canada. The filmmaker, through interviews with faculty and students, attempts to show the spirit and enthusiasm that exists in this program. In a world of animation "factory" schools charging tens of thousands of dollars per year, the Commercial Animation program is a rare gem with a single vision: prepare students for successful animation careers. With only one intake of 24 students per year, and low tuition, this is the way animation schools used to be. The strong foundation that students get at CapU has lead to international success with students currently working at Disney Feature Animation, Dreamworks and Pixar.
