This unique course is designed to help you create animated characters that capture the imagination of an audience through contemporary narrative film and video processes. From day one the projects focus on the specialist skills of animation. 3D stop-motion, model making and puppet production, 2D cell, illustrative and computer-generated animation, are covered. High calibre technical and creative tuition is central to the student learning experience. Opportunity for individuality and personal expression is provided throughout the course.
Animation is primarily concerned with the making of moving images in order to communicate something – ideas, sensations, facts, feelings, emotions and stories, the range is limitless! Our definition of animation is very wide indeed and work can be drawing based – though collage, mixed media, photography, or 3D based-modeling in a range of materials – clay, glass, metal, plastics, textile and wood, or any other appropriate material.
We want each individual to discover their own particular visual language and for this reason the pursuit of personal work is an important requirement of the course.
