About CG Spectrum:

Giving students this opportunity is what inspired Directors Nick Fredin and Jeff Pepper to co-found CG Spectrum, the Vancouver based online school for visual effects, animation, modeling and concept design.

In 2011, their dream of building a school that gives students the opportunity to receive quality education through personalized training by the best artists in the industry, without paying a fortune or being one of hundreds of graduates pumped out annually, became a reality.

Our Goal:
At CG Spectrum, our goal is to make our students the most employable artists in the film and games industry. To achieve this we have developed programs that provide our students with continuous attention from our mentors, helping them to build their skills quickly and with a high level of support.

CG Spectrum is different to other online schools; our class sizes are much smaller and we spend much more time with our students. We strongly believe that being good mentors means developing a strong personal and supportive relationship with our students.

Our Philosophy:

Our philosophy is to provide guidance to students throughout each and every week of their course; not just teach a lesson and then grade submissions at the end of each week.
