Course description

3D Animation Summer School:

This course is aimed at people wishing to be animators of the future.

It combines an introduction to the creative and technical aspects of 3D animation with information about today’s animation industry.

Following an introduction to the history of 3D animation, you'll be set a project to develop an animated character and accompanying narrative.

Your time will be split between working in the animation studio on your project, and hearing from guest speakers or visiting places of interest that inspire professional animators.

On this course you will:

  • design a character for 3D animation
  • experiment with Maya animation software
  • work on top-of-the-range equipment including High end workstations with Nvidia Quadro graphics cards and Wacom Cintiq HD Touch tablets
  • use TVPaint to create a simple storyboard
  • add sound and music to an animation
  • learn about directing your character for the screen.

What will you gain?

You'll combine new idea generation and research skills with your knowledge of Maya software so that, by the end of the two weeks, you'll have a character to present to your fellow students.

You'll also have:

  • an understanding of the different types of jobs available to you in the animation, gaming and visual effects industries
  • knowledge of what a company like Pixar looks for in a CV
  • the confidence to present yourself and your showreel to potential employers.

This course is ideal if you are new to animation and are considering future studies or looking to enhance your CV and portfolio.
