Hi, I am thinking of applying to Art Center in Pasadena for the Entertainment Design programme. As an international student, basically I would apply in the hope that I receive a somewhat good scholarship, otherwise I wouldn't be able to attend. So I guess my portfolio needs to be really good. I know all of this sounds impossible but I guess I won't lose anything by trying. I have a few questions though, hope someone can answer:
- Is it necessary for the whole portfolio to be unified by a story, or can the individual pieces of artwork be based on different narratives of my invention?
- My strength is environments. Is it too bad if I have, say, 8 pages on environments and 1 on characters and vehicles? xD
- About how long does the portfolio need to be?
Any other thing you can think of, please tell. If you know of other good schools with similar programmes that might have good scholarships, I'd also appreciate that.

Yep, I know that I need to show different variations and sketches, but those aspects weren't really clear...
Couple of Art Center portfolios in there. Long thread, but if you're really interested, it's all there.
Also, if you haven't read it:
Couple of Art Center students made the book, so if you're at that level, you can probably get in with scholarships. Also, the reading is really informative.
I was told the entertainment design program is one of their more exclusive programs and only lets in about 20 students a semester for that program.
