About the event

Hello and Welcome

The students and staff of the University of Hertfordshire’s award winning Digital Animation Programme would like to invite you to our annual end of year show: Animation Exposé Online.

This year’s event is running from 11am to 4pm on 15th July and, as you may have guessed from the title, will be taking place entirely online via the strange magic of YouTube live streaming. The day will include our usual mix of special guest speakers from industry and the very best of our student short films, showreels and game trailers. This year’s line-up of industry guests includes speakers from Airship Images, Blink Ink and Blue Zoo.

If you’re looking for some of the finest graduating digital artists and animators in the UK this year, then look no further than the University of Hertfordshire and the Animation Exposé Online. Our graduates work in over 500 Animation, VFX, Games and Visualisation studios across the world.

Keep an eye on  for the soon-to-be-announced schedule for the day and the full details of how to watch the proceedings live online. Then on 15th July you can point your browser in the direction of our live stream, join in for chats with the industry guests and graduating students and virtually meet your next generation of junior artists.
