"I only wish that Gnomon had existed when I was a kid. It's that brilliant nexus of imagination and practical reality; a place where dreamers learn to realize, share and bring to life the visions in their heads. The latest and greatest technology is meaningless without inspired instruction. This is what Gnomon has in spades. Their professors - and founders - are people who truly inspire. They don't just teach the 'how to' - they give you context, understanding and expectations of 'how to on the job'. Theirs is a practical approach to actually working in film, video and gaming. It's that amazing ideal, where art and making a living peacefully co-exist. You can certainly become a successful working artist without Gnomon, but with their pedigree, placement stats, culture and track record, why take that chance?" ---JJ ABRAMS CEO Bad Robot Productions Director Star Trek, Super 8
