MCU’s film, Avengers: Infinity War, Reveals Academy of Art University Alumnus’s Creative Expertise

Viewers have given high ratings to the animated film, Avengers: Infinity War. This ┬áMarvel Cinematic Universal film showcases the talent and genius of Jan Philip Cramer, head of animation at Digital Domain. Cramer, an alumnus of San Francisco’s Academy of Art University, told those to whom he spoke at the Academy that being the animation supervisor of the film and generating creative ideas were moments that he had dreamed about. His work in visual effects and animation has been his dream come true in the science-fiction/fantasy movie Avengers as he has brought imagined worlds to life on the screen.

The talented Cramer has previously been recognized for his achievements. In 2017 he was made a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In 2011 he received Academy of Art University’s Emerging Artist Alumni Award. It was at this private accredited art and design school that Cramer was provided a strong foundation for his creative work. As the largest art school in the nation with an enrollment of 13,000 students and 30 programs and various degree levels, the university has a faculty of professional art and design experts who continue to work in the private sector so that they stay informed on the current trends in their industry. From their instruction, therefore, students graduate with strong foundations in design and art skills that are needed for success in the professional world. The students also attain an entrepreneurial perspective that serves them well in their careers.

Established in 1929 by Richard S. Stephens, creative director of Sunset Magazine, the Academy of Art University adheres to Stephens’s convictions that aspiring artists should be admitted into an art institution without barriers and without having an art portfolio. He also held the belief that young artists who are motivated, dedicated, and hard-working can learn from professionals and attain the necessary skills to become professionals themselves. In keeping with Stephens’s perspectives, students from all over the world are welcomed to Academy of Art University.
