Program Advisory Committee

Every year, Lost Boys | School of Visual Effects seeks out the top advisors to ensure we are meeting industry needs and stay current with our program development.

We meet with the Program Advisory Committee during the year and invite them to review our program and facility. Program advisors identify current industry trends and advancements in the skills. This gives graduates the knowledge to meet current employer requirements. They advise on the need for new programs and participate in their development and quality assurance. Committee members also assist in identifying industry resources, such as guest speakers, studio connections, practicum placement and/or employment opportunities. Program Advisory Committee members are another important liaison between Lost Boys, the local industry and visual effects community at large. Our advisors are one of our greatest assets and we highly value their opinions.

We are privileged to have them share their knowledge and insight with us!
