VCAD's insight:

My name is Roneel. I graduated from VCAD. I took 3D Modeling Animation Art and Design program.

 

VCAD was really nice as well as teachers because it was very easy to talk to them. They helped us out a lot. We had a lot of fun. It was very easy to model with them and to get feedback and advice.

 

My demo reel is based on a scrap yard or in other words a bone yard. Most of the objects there are airplanes. In fact you can see a crashed airplane as the camera goes into the interior of it. Also, in the demo reel I have a Western style gas station and run-down 1948 Chevrolet truck. It was really fun to model. Just for laugh I put a space shuttle in there too.

 

As for the future I would love to go into the 3D modeling or visual effects.  3D animation would be fine too.

In the beginning I would like to work for Nickelodeon or any small studio, but in five years’ time I would love to work for Pixar and Disney.

VCAD's insight:

My name is Tira Hummelle and I went to VCAD for fashion design.

I am actually from a small town in Alberta; so, coming to the city was a huge change for me. I was originally thinking about going into the arts program and I just started looking at the different schools. I saw that there was a fashion design program available here. I thought to check it out and see if I would be interested in it, and it turned out exactly what I kind of needed. Yeah, it was right after high school.

What I have learned most while going to the school at VCAD was garment construction. I had an excellent garment construction teacher and he really taught me how to take my designs and be able to put them together and make them successfully.

To see my pieces on a model for the first time I think is one of the biggest highlights. It is different creating pieces and seeing them on a mannequin or something, but to have the whole picture put together and have all of your models wearing the pieces is amazing.

It is totally worthwhile. I could have never imagined myself doing anything else now and I had no idea that it was going to be as exciting. Being able to creatively express yourself in so many different ways is an amazing experience.

VCAD's insight:

What did you like most about the program?

Our teachers were just fantastic! They really made it what our school needed to be. They taught me a lot and provided us with everything we needed.

How did the instructors help in your program?

I think it was beneficial because if they didn’t have the experience and anybody could be teaching you, but the fact that all of them were interior designers themselves we had a real world experience advice.

Why is the portfolio show important?

I think it will benefit us in a sense that we kind of met those people and we know how to communicate with them. They became our contacts we can get in touch with.

How did it help having actual working instructors?

We went to a few furniture stores and we went to tile stores, and carpet stores, and glass stores as well, which was very cool.

VCAD's insight:

How has graduation changed your life?

I am going to be much more focused on finding a job in the industry and it will change me in many ways I’m not really sure of yet.

What has school done for you?

I can easily design somebody’s space if that’s what they need and I’m much more involved into the design community, and I’m now more experienced in places I have never been experienced in before.

What advice would you give to someone who is thinking about going back to school?

Be confident and always ask for help if you need it. Basically … yeah!

VCAD's insight:

Hi!

My name is Breanne and I was in the Interior Design program at VCAD

Why go back to school?

It’s just one of those things where I was always interested in. I took four years out of high school and travelled around. I have always been interested in the design world and decided to pursue it. I found VCAD and it looked like a good school; so, I looked into it, got accepted and moved to Vancouver.

What interested you about Interior Design?

I have always been one of those people who walked into the room and noticed everything that I don’t like about the place or things I like about the place; so, I just figured that it was my field.

Did you have any apprehensions or fears?

Definitely! One of my apprehensions was about failing in general and not being good at what I was trying to do especially after taking so long after being in high school. It made me a bit nervous, but it was good in the end.

Were family and friends supportive?

My family has always been supportive and my friends as well. They all want me to be in Sasquatchian if I could, but whenever I want they will always be there for me.

Why choose to attend VCAD?

I didn’t know much about VCAD because I was in Australia at that time and I looked at a few schools. VCAD looked like a choice for me and I chose that one. Speaking to the representative of VCAD made the program sound very good and that is why I chose it. It just sounded like hands on and teachers sounded very good.
