Massey is opening up a new course next year in Creative Media Production.

Link here: http://creative.massey.ac.nz/study/unde ... roduction/

What does everyone think? :) Looks promising?
I think its taken the VFX and 3D component of the Design course in Visual Communication and tucked it into a 3 year more specific course.

How does massey stack up with its 3D/VFX/CGI side of things? I emailed a lecturer, and it sounds very promising but I guess I'm wondering if anyone has any other opinions? :)

I'm essentially trying to decide between Massey, or MDS.
I've got to admit, MDS looks VERY promising but I haven't had any experience with Masseys media-side of things.

BUMP. If anyone can offer any unbiased opinions would be greatly appreciated. :s
I'm aware of the MDS application deadline approaching rapidly and I can't make up my mind. I think cheaper living/course fees is drawing me to Wellington, but MDS looks rather great. Although I haven't checked out the Massey course in-person so its hard to tell with comparing institutions. :cry:
I e-mailed the lecturer at Massey and everyone (rightfully) leans towards the institutions they work/study at but I'm finding it hard to actually compare institutions on how widely recognized they are/how good course content is.

Also, I'm assuming MDS has been approved by the Tertiary Education Commission, and you're eligible for the Student Loan while studying there?

MDS is an NZQA approved school and you can apply for student loans and allowances. I don't know anything really about that Massey course, as it is a new course. It'll have a few similarities to the MDS course as far as structure goes, but I'm sure it'll be a different experience over all. Gray is the guy running that course - he's a good friend of mine and emailed me about it a while back. If you're wondering about what you'll get out of it, I'd also ask about the staff involved - how many, what their backgrounds are, how long they've been in the industry and how long they've been teaching.
