Starting a new school year is always a satisfaction and a confirmation that the passion for Cinema, 3D, animation, concept art and video games is increasingly present in young people. Since October 4, we have celebrated the welcome of the Pre-university, Career and Masters students who are incorporated into university life at FX ANIMATION and the students who continue their training with a series of activities, meetings with families and exclusive presentations of the programs that are included in their trainings: FX Family, FX ESports, FX Experience and AlumniX-.
Within the talks with students that have taken place in Welcome Week 2021, they have been able to learn how to do good time management, how to develop their talent and achieve the success of developing a working life within the profession they have chosen. From the hand of the coordinators, teachers and heads of studies in the areas of cinema and 3D, the students have learned about the structure of the training courses, the professional objectives, they have met their new colleagues and the facilities that they will enjoy to develop their studies.
