|Description:||The BA (Hons) Animation degree aims to introduce students to the innovative world of moving image, digital visualization, and contemporary narrative. The aim of this course is to develop creative animators and artists with the flexibility to practice their craft in a variety of media. Students can gain an understanding of how the media of two-dimensional traditionally drawn animation and three-dimensional computer-generated techniques merge to create unique, innovative projects.
Students have the opportunity to gain a thorough grounding in classical animation principles and an introduction to digital techniques. Life drawing forms an integral part of the course, combined with developing narrative, character design, and animation techniques. In the final year, students can work within a team to produce a short film that sets the premise for their personal showreel. Students are encouraged to participate in various stages of production, such as character animation, art direction and lighting, digital compositing and effects, post-production techniques, and production management.
