This cutting-edge course is delivered within the NCCA (National Centre for Computer Animation), which is one of the most established and highly regarded centres for animation in the country.
The course places an emphasis on the creative side of computer animation, combining traditional art disciplines like life drawing and cinematography with more technically focused disciplines to produce computer animation using industry-standard tools and software.
It aims to produce graduates who are going to shape the computer animation, visual effects and computer games industries. As a graduate from this degree, you’ll have a well-rounded knowledge of the design and aesthetic principles required in computer animation production.
Ultimately the course will help you to acquire the skills to fulfil roles such as computer graphics and animation artistic director (AD), visual effects artist, and visual effects supervisor, in the fields of the computer animation, visual effects and computer games industries.
