In 1937, Walt Disney introduced the first full-length animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It took 750 artists 3 years to create the blockbuster that didn't just amuse its audience but provoked a range of emotions as well.

You’ll do more than learn the latest computer software and master the contemporary techniques of sound design. You'll also develop age-old skills in art and storytelling.
