ASPIRING effects artists now have a golden opportunity to learn from the best thanks to an online school named for the man who brought The Terminator, Predator, Iron Man, Aliens, and the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park to life. I’m talking, of course, about the late Stan Winston, and the school his family started with a stated mission to empower aspiring artists and technical wizards to push the boundaries of character creation for years to come.
Pricing is surprisingly affordable, and the courses are set-up for maximum convenience. All you need is an internet connection or a DVD player and you can study wherever you are—at your own pace—under an all-star faculty of effects professionals. Like I said, this is truly a golden opportunity for aspiring FX artists.
Check the website for more information. But before you go, here’s a quick look at what the Stan Winston School of Character Arts has to offer.
