The John Hughes Institute (JHI) is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. With additional locations in Kuala Lumpur, Hyderabad, Vancouver, and Beijing, our mission is to promote the art and science of visual storytelling.
The programs at JHI emphasize the nexus between the arts and the sciences, in order to foster problem solving, creative innovation, and critical thinking. JHI Faculty (with award-winning credentials) teach courses that prepare students for working in high-end feature films, commercials, games, and themed entertainment. In addition, JHI Subject Matter Experts (with a combined 30 years in the the animation and VFX pipeline) work with creative studios to design and deploy continuing education programs for in-house artists, as well as on-boarding programs for new hires/starters.
Headed by VFX-pioneer John Hughes, JHI offers a focused curriculum in computer animation, visual effects (VFX), and storytelling/narrative.
