This course encourages you to think on your feet and respond to live and self-initiated briefs to solve creative problems. Our students are adaptive thinkers who understand how animation may collaborate with other art forms.
We use a mix of practice and theory-based learning, including lectures, seminars, workshops, individual tutorials and self-directed study. You will explore the medium using industry standard software and will produce an assessed portfolio of creative and professional work.
Animation graduates often work as 3D/2D generalists as well as specialists in areas including concept, modelling, animation and VFX production. Our graduates are often employed in film and television, visual effects, advertising, post-production, apps and games.
Ravensbourne students and the BBC collaborated in bringing 'a series of charming films about our historical relationship with the weather', further clips here.
