Pairing business, technology and creativity, our students come to the heart of Silicon Valley to deepen and grow their passions. The result? A skilled and dynamic community with a social life that is surprisingly robust.
Immersive, collaborative and designed to unlock your creativity—for over 130 years USV has been helping people turn their passion into their professions. Today, it’s your turn. Explore our program offerings to help you develop the skills you need for the job you’ll love.
Students design, model, texture and rig characters using ZBrush, Maya, Photoshop and Houdini. This allows them to gain experience in team structure, efficiency in communication, working in a pipeline. The goal is to provide professional quality rigs to animate—created by students for students—and eventually release them to animators around the world.
Here's a sample of our student-created rigs available for download. Fill out the download form to access the files and and we'll let you know when our next character rig releases!
