“We live in the line of the rapid-fire of moving images. They are raining down on us from every possible place: movie and television screens, computer monitors, mobile displays, presentations, and advertisements. They entertain, inform, and control us. But who is going to invent, design, edit and record the images of the future in a creative, smart, and artistic way? This might be just you.

“I chose this area because I felt this was closest to fine arts. The five years I spent here confirmed not only this presumption but offered a wonderful chance to work together closely and brainstorm with outstanding teachers and artists.”

Our graduate student GÁBOR MÁRIÁN

“We had the opportunity to deepen our knowledge and skills related to visual representation. Imagery works in our life further as an alternative communication form. We talk in a visual language, are able to express our thoughts through it and the best thing is that we can create a message which can be read by anyone.”
