BA (Hons) 3D Digital Animation
This course is one of four in our Animation Programme and it is designed to give you the high level of skills you will need to begin a successful career in today’s exciting 3D digital animation industry. Emphasis is placed on creativity, character animation, modelling and narrative – all underpinned by advanced software skills.
The First year is almost identical across all the courses, giving you a chance to learn skills from every one of our degrees. You will use the latest software and modelling and animation techniques, develop essential skills in character design, narrative and drawing and learn about the wider historical contexts of animation and games. You may decide to switch to either of the other three degree routes within the course during this year.
In your Second Year you will study film language, character animation, modelling, visual effects and the power of post-production for integrating and compositing 3D-VFX.
Your Final Year is all about engaging in real-world practices and preparing for employment. You will make a final short animated film, taking it from pre-production, storyboarding, and animatic through production and postproduction. You will also prepare a showreel.
