Are you an animator of the future? This course will combine an introduction to the creative and technical aspects of 3D animation with information about today’s animation industry. You will design a character for 3D animation, use puppetry to explore movement and narrative and experiment with Maya animation software. You will work on top-of-the-range equipment including high end workstations with Nvidia Quadro graphics cards and Wacom Cintiq HD Touch tablets, and use TVPaint to create a simple storyboard. You will also learn how to add sound and music to an animation and how to direct your character for the screen.
You should have completed at least one year of undergraduate studies and have a demonstrable interest and prior knowledge of the subject.
After studying this course you should be able to combine new idea generation and research skills with your knowledge of Maya software and understand the different types of jobs available to you in the animation, gaming and visual effects industries. You will gain an understanding of what a company like Pixar looks for in a CV and have the confidence to present yourself and your showreel to potential employers.
