<strong>Los Angeles &mdash; May 14</strong><br />The Los Angeles Film School has added two degree offerings, an Associate of Science degree in game development and an Associate of Science degree in computer animation, each set to begin in September. <br /><br />The Game Development Associate&#39;s Program will provide an opportunity for students seeking an education in video-game development. It will cover the process of creating a video game from the initial stages of game structure and preproduction, to advanced coding, artificial intelligence and game-engine creation. <br /><br />The Computer Animation Associate&#39;s Program will allow students to learn the animation pipeline used throughout the industry to create art and special effects for games, television and film. It will feature training in advanced modeling software to create virtual models, characters and visual effects for a variety of multimedia applications. <br /><br />The new degrees will join The Los Angeles Film School&#39;s recently introduced Associate of Science Degree in Film as the next step in the evolution of the school&#39;s curriculum. <br /><br />"These degrees are a natural addition to the curriculum at The Los Angeles Film School," said Diana Derycz-Kessler, chief executive officer. "Game developers and computer animators have stories to tell, much like our filmmakers." <br /><br />"This is a great addition to the educational landscape in southern California, as Los Angeles is the hub of the gaming industry," said Andi Smithers, research and development senior engineer for Sony Online in San Diego. "Not only is there a strong industry demand for well-equipped people, but as technology changes and new techniques need to be acquired, professionals are constantly looking to refresh their own skills." <br />
