There are a number of reasons why I think it makes a great school, although there are also a few drawbacks too.
Is Gnomon worth it?
That's the question that most potential students ask themselves - and for good reason! Gnomon is one of the most expensive schools by far in the field of visual effects.
Gnomon specializes in courses of 3-D computer graphics and visual effects and, although it can be considered a new entrant in the field, it has established itself very well.
The art of VFX is not that difficult to learn, although - to make it a good career - you need to be both creative and artistic (which I assume you already are).
Would I recommend Gnomon School of Visual Effects?
Personally, I would suggest you go for the course! Although it is expensive, it will pay for itself once you land your dream job. Good animators can earn around $2000-4000 per week.
Also, in terms of geography, you're unlikely to find a course as excitingly high-profile as one based in Hollywood, California.
My opinion is that a VFX course is only as good as the show-reels its students produce - and, based on the content coming out of Gnomon, it's definitely worth the course fees!
