I'd say SCAD, NCAA and LostBoys are probably some of the best one, but I have not attended any of them...

Hard to say...School is just as good as you make it...You can learn tons of things online for free instead of spending money in those very expensive schools...

 

Good luck!

http://www.cgsociety.org/training/course/vex-in-houdini- great one after you know the basic stuff and want to learn proper programming in Houdini

Instead of promoting other people or the place where I work, or even worse, promote places I don´t know at all, I will just say this.

Go for the place that shows stronger REELS FROM STUDENTS THAT WERE CREATED DURING THE COURSE.

 

Check those students reels and draw your own conclusions. It´s the same thing you will use to get a job afterwards, and your only true passport to work in studios. And it´s the only physical proof you will have from your learning at the center.

 

I also concur that online instruction is getting better by the day, and it you are good at self-motivation and learn in a structured way, you can indeed learn online. An instructor is simply a faster way to show you what to learn first, why, and how to avoid pitfalls. Also a good instructor will help you build your skills and allow you to create your own reel in the way that favours you the most. If you can get all these from online instruction, then by all means, go for it and avoid spending money on travelling anywhere.

Thanks to all for suggest me,................honestly i want to say something i am working here from six year as a 3d generalist in Maya in Indian filmindustry bollywood but here not a such type of future like working on Hollywood film industries. From last one year i am working in Houdini as a FX Artist and i also learning houdini.

Thats why i am thinking that i should go abroad for study for Houdini specialization.

Hi Imran,

 

Our team at Gridmarkets just published a new artist profile featuring Houdini artist Ben Watts. His Houdini tutorials are great and he also shares a pretty comprehensive list of Houdini learning resources - both paid and free - that you may find useful for remote learning. Good luck!
