Course summary

This course will teach you the creative and technical skills you need to work in the animation and visual effects industry. This course mixes creative and critical thinking, and will develop your technical skill-set using industry-standard software such as Maya, Nuke, and Houdini. What sets this course apart from others is how industry-facing it is. You will undertake a live project with an animation studio where you will work to a targeted brief, learn professional production pipelines, and receive feedback on your work. You will also develop a narrative-based film and showreel or breakdown reel as part of your final expo. We have great connections to the animation, film, television, video games, and comics industries, and many of our graduates have gone on to work around the world for top studios and franchises.
