Course summary

From Méliès crashing a rocket into the titular character’s eye in A Trip to the Moon (1902) right through to the pioneering studio work of Disney, Pixar and Aardman, animation is about creating the illusion of movement in a variety of visual art forms to engage audiences and tell stories, and where anything is possible. On this degree, you will acquire a wide range of animation skills and the ability to produce a variety of animation products to be used for visual art forms, including film, television, virtual reality, web animation and video games. The programme is aligned to the professional standards of ScreenSkills, the industry-led skills body for the UK’s screen-based industries. Through an array of practice-based and critically informed projects, you will be introduced to a wide range of techniques. You will hone your skills on live animation projects in our specialist studios, embrace your personal creativity and express your own ideas. Gaining an understanding of the global potential of the animation industry and a detailed knowledge of professional animation practice, you will be immersed in all stages of the animation process, from idea generation and character creation to pitch-presentation, animated performance and post-production.
