One of the most notable opportunities Aidan received resulted from an internship that a professor helped him secure.
For Aidan Wilson, one of the best parts about the digital media and animation (DMA) program is the sense of community that develops among the students and their professors.
“I really like the digital media and animation program because it has a strong focus on collaborating with your peers, and that’s just invaluable. Also, the professors are very involved and a lot of them take the time to find opportunities for you if you’re willing to work with them.”
One of the most notable opportunities Aidan received resulted from an internship that a professor helped him secure. This internship led to Aidan doing post-production visual effects work on the 2017 movie “Mother.” Aidan’s job on the motion picture involved removing blemishes from actors’ faces in post-production, which led to him being listed in the film’s credits.
“It all came from talking to my professor. He said I should apply to the internship and it led to working on a movie, so I can’t thank him enough for that.”
Aidan highly recommends Alfred State as a place to come study digital media and animation.
“If you’re interested in animation and you’re looking for some place in New York State, I’d say Alfred State is fantastic. You can’t really go wrong with coming here.”
