WHAT MAKES MAX THE MUTT DIFFERENT? We prepare students for more than a first job!

Max the mutt (MTM) graduates have the knowledge, skills and confidence to build careers. Most of our instructors are working professionals, and our curriculum is continually being updated to match industry realties. Focus and concentration are the secret behind the amazing work our students and graduates produce.

MTM stresses community and inclusiveness. Every MTM student matters, and receives personal individual attention from our instructors. MTM graduates succeed because of our small class size, our developmental curriculum, our faculty of dedicated, working professionals, and a supportive but serious professional environment.

Offer 4-year Diploma Programs in:

• Classical & Computer Animation & Production
• Illustration & Storytelling for Sequential Arts
• Concept Art for Animation & Video Games

MTM’s strong first-year traditional fine-art curriculum allows us to accept individuals who, through portfolio and personal interview, demonstrate potential and determination, but may need to further develop drawing, design and perspective skills.

Our graduates now work for many top companies including Yowza Animation, 9 Story/ Brown Bag, Sony Imageworks, UbiSoft, ShadowMachine, Warner Brothers, and Pixar.

“I am honestly impressed with the calibre of the fresh skill and talents that have come from Max the Mutt over the recent years. Ubisoft Toronto now is home to a handful of very skilled and dependable full-time contributors who add their visual voices towards supporting the Art Direction of our top Brand IPs. It’s an honour to have had the pleasure to see so many graduates come into our studio environment and professionally grow into some of our industry’s best talents.”
- Patrick Ingoldsby (Art Director, Ubisoft Toronto)
