THE COURSE

Animation is pure imagination. Few industries allow you to create what has never been seen before, which is very, very cool. But it’s also a profession where technical expertise and application is as important as raw talent, and this is where we come in. This course is all about building your character and credentials by giving you hands-on experience in 3D modelling, rigging, design, textures, lighting, rendering and compositing. Throughout your course, you’ll explore each aspect of animation in detail with the guidance of expert teachers. You’ll be working on cutting-edge software like Maya, Autodesk 3D MAX, and Adobe Creative Suite to help bring your ideas to life, as well as learn collaborative and project management skills – all within a world-class, studio-based learning environment.
