Red Engine School of Art and Design is founded and established by entertainment industry veterans, Steve Jung and Jung Park. The two bring fifteen years of combined experience in films, video games, feature animation, themed entertainment, commercial design, toy design, and product design. With this array of industry design experience they have worked with an equally extensive mix of clientele that includes Walt Disney Pictures, Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks, SKG, Microsoft, Sony Entertainment, Industrial Light + Magic, and NCSoft among other notables in the industry. Some of their more recent projects are blockbuster hits such as Transformers: RotF, Tron Legacy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the hit video game series, God of War.
Steve Jung and Jung Park have both taught entertainment design courses at Otis College of Design for over three years, in addition to wide-ranging experience giving lectures and workshops for studios across the globe.
Red Engine's goal has always been to create an educational environment unlike any other to pioneer a more effective way to prepare students and professionals for their career in the entertainment industry taught by real industry professionals in a real studio setting.
Red Engine's instructors are working industry professionals who bring their passion, design, experience, and industry experience to the classroom. They know the importance of understanding how the real working world operates and requires. Red Engine seeks to recreate this environment and facilitate the students with what it takes to become ahead of the game.
Our curriculum resembles this structure by taking our students through completion of collaborative and in-class projects. At Red Engine, students complete these projects, which is critical in securing employment after graduation. Red Engine students are taught from the inception of the project to conceptualize, detail, and manifest each element from beginning to end, into a fully-functional product. The same industry standards and work methods are utilized with the students to grow their ability, knowledge and skills so that upon graduation the students will be primed to enter the field in smooth transition.
