Let’s admit it: getting a multimedia arts job isn’t as easy as they tell it is. But neither it is as unrealistic as they say it is. If you’re here to know the different multimedia arts courses in the Philippines, here are they—coupled with a chunk of insights to let you know where they head to:
1. Digital Graphic Designing
Digital graphic design is one vast field for artists. Think of who makes the marketing bannerson the Internet, the infographics, the posters, the billboard ads, the logo, the web layout, the cartoon characters, the product packaging—need we say more?
And since there are so many channelsto choose from, there is certainly more opportunities you could catch. The best thing: you only have to pick one area of expertise. Master one thing in multimedia arts and you can support your living. But be warned, you better be dang good at it because the competition is also as high as the demand.
2. Video and Motion Graphics
From international films to birthday parties, there’s no arguing that a videographer is a highly in-demand professional of the 21st century. Just imagine how many movies are being made every year, or how many marketing video are posted on YouTube per hour, or at least how many events happen in town per week. And hey, how about TV commercials and indie films?
Now you know howvideo developers sustain a living despite the odd choice of career. While it’s still the dawn of the digital era, many companies and marketers are starting to realize the role of motion graphics in getting the best out of their marketing efforts.
While many people think of animators as wasted talents who could only work atDisney, the truth is very far from the belief. So first things first: animators could work on animated films, games, commercials, music videos, product and parts design, and of course, CAD modeling.
The best part of pursuing a career in animation is that people with those skills are rarer than any other specialist in multimedia arts. Competition is a lot easier when it comes to this field, and those who got real distinctive talents can find a job easier than in any other career.
But most of all, getting a career as a multimedia artist isn’t totally about money. It’s a sort of balancing between working on your passions and getting a decent living, at the same time,being respected as a professional like your science-and-technology counterparts.
So you got a dream of being a professional artist? Why not start by finding the right school that will teach you practical and real life skills?
