What is a better summer program in animation, CalArts or RISD?
CalArts was competitive to get into, and is way cheaper for a CA resident.
RISD's program admits pretty much everyone, but their summer curriculum includes design/foundation drawing/art history in addition to animation, which may be good for adding pieces to a portfolio over the summer.
What would look better on an application this fall for someone interested in pursuing animation and applying to UCLA Arts, USC film/animation, RISD, and CalArts?
