Program Overview

Actors aren’t the only movie stars, you know. Explosions, scenery and strange creatures are integral to a great blockbuster, which is where you, dear animator, will be able to steal the show. Our award-winning faculty will help you develop your animation and visual effects skills on an immersive level and get to grips with modelling, rendering, lighting, and technical direction. To prepare you for life as a professional, your studies will culminate with your involvement in an amazing, industry-level film where you can win awards and prime your portfolio for a real-world studio. 

What is 3D Art Design?

3D Art Design is the creation of 3D static and animated models through computer software. 3D Art is heavily featured in animated films by the likes of Pixar and Disney, and can be seen in many modern video games.

We teach some of the most popular 3D modelling and sculpting software include Maya, Cinema4D and Blender. We are also proud to be a certified Houdini partner, giving you access and support to one of the best 3D tools around.

Course Outline

What you'll cover in this course

  • Year 1 - During the first year, you will learn foundation art skills and achieve proficiency in both industry-standard technical tools and visual effects software. This exciting immersion includes an introduction to modelling, animation, rigging and visual effects.
  • Year 2 - Your second year involves immersive studies in core subjects such as preproduction, scripting and dynamics. In the second term, you have the chance to pursue a chosen specialisation in visual effects and motion graphics, technical 3D studies or 3D animation studies. Whichever you opt for will remain your specialist focus for the rest of your studies; however, all core subjects including tutorials, theory classes and art classes are taught collectively.
  • Year 3 - In year three, you will be immersed in production as you work on group and individual projects. The final year also incorporates industry procedures and practice to prepare you for industry placement. Everything you learn mirrors the real world – we make sure you're job-ready before you go.
