“Live The Art, Love The Science, Learn The Craft”

Who We Are

The John Hughes Institute (JHI) is headquartered in Los Angeles, the entertainment capital of the world. Headed by VFX-pioneer and founder of Rhythm & Hues Studios, John Hughes, JHI offers a unique curriculum in computer animation, visual effects (VFX), and literature/media arts education. Faculty and subject matter experts with award-winning credentials teach courses to prepare students for working in high-end feature films, commercials, games, and themed entertainment.

The programs at JHI emphasize the nexus between the arts and the sciences to foster creative and critical thinking and problem solving. Thus, in addition to focusing on the entertainment sector — feature films, commercials, games, and themed entertainment – JHI will also offer a K-12 program in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). The goal is to broaden the experience and understanding of STEAM fields for K-12 students through cutting-edge entertainment technologies.

With its headquarters in California, JHI is uniquely poised to operate in a state that is at the forefront of innovation in both entertainment and STEAM education.
