Animation and Visual Effects (VFX) have become some of the fastest growing segments in the global media and entertainment market with this content being consumed not only on streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and Twitch, but also on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. From million pound movies to augmented and virtual reality, we absorb this type of media every day.
If you’re interested in digital art, graphics, 3D modelling and want to work in film, TV, post production or even games, bring your wild imagination and study Animation & Visual Effects.
The aim of this course is to give you the building blocks needed to specialise in your desired computer-generated art form. Using sophisticated graphics and animation packages such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects, you’ll develop your skills to be able to create dynamic, animated 2D content before moving on to motion graphics and stop motion animation in your first year.
By year two, you’ll be creating 3D assets yourself and then combining these with video and 2D content to use in your own advanced VFX compositions. You’ll explore the roles and principles needed in the VFX industry to fully understand where you want to progress to and the area you’re most interested in.
