Game Production Diploma Program

Game production is predominantly about imagining and building entire worlds and their inhabitants from scratch and devising immersive experiences that can run and adapt to the demands of user play in real-time. Our GAME PRODUCTION students share much of the initial introduction to their craft with our VFX crew, as the fundamental skills required in 3D modeling, lighting, texturing, and composition have a lot of overlap.

The DAVE School Game Production Diploma (GPD) teaches specifically for success in this thriving industry. Like its sister VFX Diploma, the Game Production Diploma Program spans 12 months and offers scheduled starts each Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall. Its uniquely flexible, hybrid format combines nine months of live, online classes with three months of on-campus lessons in Orlando, Florida. During this three-month studio residency, students work together under the direct guidance of their instructors on pre-production techniques of a real game of their making.
