Do you see yourself in this film story?

One College has been graduating more involvement in the blockbusters

leading games and independent studios for over 20 years!wenty—five years ago we were ahead of our time, but we hardly knew it. At that time, we were a media production group creating video walls + multimedia slideshows on our Oxberry animation stand + filming breakthrough technology in the Australian outback
+ producing Las Vegas industrial theater + designing theater spaces + creating plans for a school that would be the future of media education. With this kickoff, Living Arts College was created in 1992.

It was the natural extension from the founding team of the production studio Communication Arts. The same producer/director team would dedicate the mission of the school to preparing graduates with the ONE essential skillset ... the ONE essential toolset required to grow their talent beyond usual classroom study—deliver EXTREME CREATIVITY at the studio level!

Why our graduates are writing the book on design.

One school creates the storytellers, producers and the critics.

They have labored working under a tough faculty of critics mastering the art of storytelling.
They have also learned that business that thrives on creativity and exciting audiences.
