The BA (Hons) Animation course helps you combine visual ideas with sound and time to create an on screen experience for your audience. On this course you learn: ideas generation, visual storytelling, storyboarding, scriptwriting, sound design, character design, character animation, experimental animation, 2D animation, 3D animation, stop motion animation, film editing and compositing.
At your fingertips you will have the power of software suites such as Adobe and Autodesk which are renewed annually. Specifically in animation we use Maya, Mudbox, TV Paint, After Effects, Photoshop, and Premiere Pro. We also use pencils, paper, clay and anything else that communicates a brilliant idea!
Typical career opportunities open to graduates include work in animation, TV and games design, illustration, and the creative and communications industries. Here are some of the organisations we've worked with:
The resources and equipment in Animation fully support the aspiration for high end productions to be created. Students are encouraged to work to industry standard and aspire to award winning animations.
Students also have full access to a range of high-end audio and video recording facilities through our Media store.
