This is a 3 year program for most students, taken at full time.
Throughout your first year you’ll gain an enhanced understanding of the three core techniques of animation – digital3D animation, stop motion animation and 2D animation (both hand-drawn and digital). In order to apply that knowledge, you’ll study skills like compositing, character design, storyboarding and the theory of narrative structure.
In your second year, you’ll work collaboratively and choose one or more areas in which to specialise. You’ll further develop your skills in these areas and more generally. You’ll also work on understanding the art of storytelling, the language of film and the needs of your audience.
In your final year, you’ll build a professional portfolio of your work. This will include footage from the major collaborative project you’ll take part in, working either with other students or external parties to produce a commercially viable piece.
