The CG Student Awards, which is sponsored by Autodesk, are held annually to showcase up-and-coming talent and represents the future of film, television and game production. CGSA recently released their annual list of the top 20 schools in the world offering training in these areas, and Think Tank Training Centre of North Vancouver, B.C. was named third overall and number one in Canada. The top 20 list was drawn from over 1,000 submissions from students at 216 different schools around the world. Points were based on creative skills, technical skills, esentation, raw talent and future potential.
“Having access to over 1,000 entries ranked from top-to-bottom by industry experts is an extremely powerful indicator of where the best talent is coming from globally,” said Andrew McDonald, CG Student Awards Co-Founder. With an intense focus on film production, and close to 100% job placement rate, it is no surprise that the boutique training facility in North Vancouver is recognized as the best school in Canada. Graduates have worked on Avengers 2 – Age of Ultron, Batman vs Superman, San Andreas, Jurassic World and Game of Thrones, to name a few outstanding recent examples.

There are various categories that students and recent graduates can win prizes in. They include Student of the Year, Film of the Year, Game of the Year, Bootcamp Internship, and Peoples Choice. School of the Year is calculated based on the final results from entries submitted by students. Points are awarded to each School based on data collected from entrants in Student of the Years (Games + VFX/Animation), Film of the Year, and Game of the Year categories. The data is then weighted to give each School their overall score.
