BA (Hons) Animation engages with all aspects of animated content including 2D digital, CGI and stop motion. You will develop the skills to create new characters and build new worlds using industry standard processes and techniques, equipment and software. The curriculum explores character, sound and story design as you work on practice-based projects which analyse movement, experiment with facial features to convey emotion and develop an understanding of comic timing to produce sophisticated animated idents, stings and shorts. The course is supported by industry guests, from companies such as the BBC, Baby Cow Productions, and Nickelodeon, who will challenge you to competitively pitch your ideas in response to real world live briefs. In your final year, you will produce an original animated short film and graduate with a professional understanding of the industry plus a showreel showcasing your best work and your progression over three creative, fun and challenging years.
