Best state school in Texas for art?
I'll begin by saying that I am absolutely limited to schools in Texas. I am in the Air Force, and part of my enlistment in Texas was free money for state schools for life. I would like to take advantage.
I would like to go to a school where people are more motivated and creative, willing to work together and go beyond the course curriculum. This is way more important to me than getting a degree.
I most want to do special effects work for documentaries, so any school that might be best geared for 3D rendering and animation/digital art would help. Even going to a school that is heavy into film would be nice for collaborating with people.
I do know that UNT has connections with Terminal Reality, who is now working on the new Ghostbuster's game, and that just makes me drool. I really don't want to go to UNT however...
Anyone who has any input, I would greatly appreciate to hear it. The work I've put into being set to go to school and have it paid for, has been 5 years in the making, and I want to do it right.
EDIT// Also I should note that I am stationed in Hawaii...which makes going out and visiting Texas colleges near impossible =(
Nothing can stop the Grimace.
