SVA Computer Animation Master Degree SOP
When I was a child, my mother would watch Mickey Mouse and the Power Puff girls with me. Since then, animation become an important prat of my life. After I got into college, I majored in Applied Art and I specialized in Computer Animation. I found out that animation is an amazing platform that can be used to covey various massages. Moreover, animation make things more understandable. Therefore, I want to become a 3D animator. It is my goal to enroll in the MFA Computer Art Program at School of Visual Art.
I studied in Applied Art in college and I choose to specialized in Computer Animation in my second year. I have done many projects with my classmates through out the 4 years. Cooperation is one of the most important things I have learned in college. In my second year, I had a course called Image and Music. In this class, we need to make a music video for group project. In the end, our project got good feedbacks. As the leader of the group, I learned how to manage our time and how to incorporate everyone's skills to run the project work smoothly. As the result, we received a high grade of 95 percent for the course. Through this experience, I learn how to cooperate with others for future projects.
In addition, I used to work at a children's art studio. I found out that cartoon definitely have a significant impact on children. Children not only watch cartoon for fun, they also learn and explore the world through animation. Therefore, I want to make story and animation that make children a magical and wonderful childhood. This will help making a better person when they grow up.
I have decided to apply to the MFA Computer Art Program at School of Visual Art for several reasons. First, I am really diligent in trying out new things and I have a great passion for creating animation. The courses in the Computer Art Program can assist me to improve my skills to create better works. For instance, I am very interested in the Character Animation course. Character Animation is like acting. I enjoy working on character animation because when I animate a character I feel like I become the character myself and I bring life to the model. Second, a lot of famous artists are the alumni of School of Visual Art which inspired me to become one of them. It would be an honor to join this outstanding team. Being able to study in School of Visual Art can definitely help me in achieving my goal. Therefore, I consider the master's program to be a very important part in my overall career path, and I am very grateful for your consideration of my application.
