Naomii Manning

I plan to make a Original Character and possibly turn it into an animation. So what would I fall under? Just animation?
Autumn Taylor
39:58
@Naomii - potentially! There are a few different programs that relate to character design. Email me at AuTaylor@AcademyArt.Edu so we can connect after the event.
Naomii Manning
40:45
Okay.
Mya Jackson
40:53
Will character animation and general animation be in a course--or well. be required in a course?
Naomii Manning
41:46
Can we do two majors at once? I want to be a animator and a fashionista
Autumn Taylor
42:04
@Mya - Animation covers a wide variety of techniques. Email me at AuTaylor@AcademyArt.Edu so we can go into more detail.
Autumn Taylor
43:10
@Naomii because you are focusing on a specific skill set (your program of study), you are not able to “double major” in the traditional sense. You can take a few elective classes, however.
Naomii Manning
43:41

01:02:41
in terms of music production classes, can you use your own equipment to produce music, excluding your laptop/computer?
Autumn Taylor
01:03:01
@Saleena - thankfully each class has its own supply lists! It makes it easy to know what is required and where to go to purchase that item.
Damaris Espinoza-Castro
01:03:44
So, let's say I study at a community college for 5 months , can I still go to the Academy Of Art ?
Dillon Brister
01:04:41
Can you tell us a little about some of the companies that hire from AAU? I'm going to major in Illustration and am interested in working for a gaming company. Thank you
Dulce Vasquez-Aceves
01:04:43
is there any chance we can get a tour of the campus in person?
Autumn Taylor
01:05:05
@Damaris - you can attend community college for however long makes sense before transferring but you would want to connect with us first so we can create a transfer guide for you.
Damaris Espinoza-Castro
01:05:25
okay thank you!
Saleena Boyd
01:05:30
Alright, thanks!
Serina Guerrero

@Carter that is something that really helps to build your online presence as an artist! Students get to work on that in the programs as well.
Dillon Brister
01:10:14
I am super excited to hear that because my goal is to become a concept artist but I didn't know that specific degree was an option! That's AWESOME! Thank you!
Autumn Taylor
01:10:38
@Dillon that’s awesome! One of the benefits of Academy of Art University :)

01:11:39
Are there specific requirements when submitting a portfolio in the application process?
Autumn Taylor
01:12:31
@Serina yes, there is a process to submit your work but it’s all done via digital submission. Your Admissions Representative would go over with you 1:1
Dulce Vasquez-Aceves
01:12:32
If we were interested in photography what would be some great things to add to our portfolio?
Autumn Taylor
01:13:12
@Chih-Wei Kuo - no portfolio required! Just proof of high school completion before your classes start.
Dillon Brister
01:14:32
One more quick question.... Do you require an SAT or ACT for admissions?
Mikayla Anderson
01:14:39
Someone who speaks my language XD
Dillon Brister
01:16:51
I am homeschooled and have been since kindergarten. I am very much dedicated to my future art career and can't wait to get started! Do you accept homeschooled (private school) students as well? I'm in Texas.
Dulce Vasquez-Aceves
01:17:40
