About Sconnect Academy of Media Arts

Sconnect is the producer of the popular cartoon Wolfoo, an animated series first released in 2018 that follows the adventures of a wolf and his friends and family.

The Hanoi-based academy’s mission is to train young talents who have a passion for animation and game design and wish to enter Vietnam’s animation workforce.

The launch of SAMA signifies a boom in Vietnam’s animation industry, according to People’s Artist and director Pham Ngoc Tuan. It will help unlock the industry’s potential for the future animation workforce.

SAMA aims to provide professional training programs and create opportunities for learners to study with Vietnam’s leading cartoon producers.

Vu Thuong, director and principal at SAMA, hopes that the school will assist young designers in conveying cultural and educational values to the public through their animation and game design products.

Courses at SAMA consist of two departments: animation and games arts. Each department offers a two-year program, with 80 percent of the course dedicated to practical sessions.

The first class at SAMA is scheduled to commence in August.

According to Sconnect academic director Luka Trinh, the school’s training programs will focus on creativity, artistic sensibility, and in-depth knowledge.

In addition, learners will receive instruction in foreign language skills to enhance their ability to seamlessly integrate into the global labor market.
