The most specialized training par excellence

ONLINE / ON-SITE / 2 YEARS / DIPLOMA AND CERTIFICATION

This training is essential for anyone interested in entering the TOP Studios in the industry.

STEP 1

FIRST YEAR

Comic Storytelling

The objective of this specialization is for students who have already acquired the foundations of drawing (the first year of concept or the introductory drawing course, at least) to learn sequential art techniques (closer to film, storyboarding, and of course, comic books). Once learned, the focus will be on producing pages to submit to publishers, agents, and share on social media.

By the end of the specialization, students will have the material that editors want to see in a pitch: 5-10 high-quality sequential art pages, labeled, showcasing their narrative ability in conversational, action, and dramatic situations. Additionally, to comply with the submission guidelines of different publishers, the student will develop character designs, environments, and props used in those sequential pages.

During classes, theory will be taught, applied to practical cases, there will be weekly assignments, a final project, and the creation of a portfolio.

It is important to emphasize that the sequential training is focused on comic books and not manga format. The student can use a manga-style graphic style, but the narrative and reading direction of the project should not be read as a manga comic.

Although we will study and design a cover, this is not a training in pin-ups and illustration. The objective is to draw sequential pages, which is what editors want to see. All the training will be digital, using Photoshop and Clip Studio.

STEP 2

SECOND YEAR

The Studio Production

The Studio Production is a workspace in which reels and portfolios will be made to apply to companies in the sector.

"The Studio Production" allows students to maximize their process of joining the industry, either by applying to companies or setting up their own companies.

The objective of the Studio Production is the insertion in the world of work, which is why one or several high-level reels will be carried out focused on the companies to which they apply.

The students, mainly, will work on their reels and if the expected objectives are met, they can be assigned to work groups, everything will depend on the skills acquired during The Studio Production.

Students will receive a breakdown of production by the supervisors of each department which they must follow and present to their Production Managers and Supervisors.
