What FIDM Graduates are Saying:
“All of my teachers were amazing and interested in making sure we actually understood the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ of what we were doing. The fast-paced school schedule was really the best segue into the post-production industry.”
“There’s not just one thing that I love about my job. I love the team I work with, and I love being able to design something knowing that is going to be live for thousands of people to see.”
“I would have never guessed that I would be in this position only about eight months after completing my degree at FIDM. I landed my jobs even before I finished school.”
“FIDM brought me real world experience while I was studying there. The instructors pushed me to be creative, proactive, and gave me the tools to become a good freelancer.”
“I learned how to think outside of the box and to apply what I create into various different programs, and how they would tie in well together. I feel really accomplished to be working at Warner Bros. this early upon graduating from FIDM.”
“It’s surreal being able to design the things that people see every day. There are millions of eyes that see our TV spots, and it’s awesome.”
“I love that I get to design a lot and put my work out there.”
“The best part about being a creative is getting to see your ideas hit the market. It humbles me every time I get to see product in stores that I designed by myself.”
“Everything I’d learned at FIDM prepared me to communicate and speak the language of the digital world.”
“I play video games for a living. I am a Director and Director of Photography for Video Game gameplay trailers, working closely with the industry’s biggest companies to translate their visions into cinematic trailers.”
“I learned so much about Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, which enhanced my skills. I’m constantly working on directives and other projects, so the Graphic Design program taught me how to deal with deadlines.”
“To see my design in person, and with Manny holding it– he said that it was everything that he wanted. Being a big fan, and also Filipino, it’s been a big privilege for me.”
