Think Tank Training Centre - A new life


Last month I began my year at Think Tank Training Centre, for those of you who do not know it is a CG school in North Vancouver, Although I just started my impression of this place is that it's one of the greatest places to learn the art of CG and, I think the best stepping stone for future career. Check out Think Tank's website and the program and you will know what I'm talking about: Think Tank
