    LCAD animation focuses specifically on traditional animation, so students learn the basics from professionals, which is great. However, there isn't much of an emphasis on visual development, so that is best pursued outside of class.Overall, its a great school with a close knit peer/peer and student/teacher relationship.

    LCAD has a great animation program with multiple Disney veterans heading the department who are not only experienced and talented but also genuinely passionate about preparing their students to become leaders in the industry. The teachers are all either working in the industry or have many years of experience working for the top names in the business. The school is based in a very traditional representational art and fundamental drawing skills so gear your portfolio to that. The administration doesn't seem to be on the same page as the teachers. The big things this school has going for it are the teachers, small class sizes , and the location. The admin seems to like to accept almost anyone into the school as long as they will pay tuition. This increases class size and gets people in who might not even care or have the passion that it takes to make it and that takes up teacher attention and resources. These people usually drop out in the first 2 years and accumulate tons of student debt and waste a lot of money (or their parents money). I have seen it happen to probably 30- 45% of the people I started with. So the administration is increasing the amount of students and workload on the teachers but not hiring any more teachers or increasing facilities and resources to accommodate them. This tends to make them clash with the teachers who look out for the best interests of the students and has caused all kinds of problems and drama. If they could get their act together or let the teachers participate in the admissions process the school would be much better.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I am one! put serious and professional effort into your application portfolio, as if you are giving it to Donald Trump! It will pay off because they award merit-scholarships to the best portfolios. I got one for $5,000 with my letter of acceptance!

    Its not the school, but what you do with the education. Ultimately you decide your own success. The students are friendly and the staff is quite helpful and small, so be nice. Always network when you have the opportunity to.
