Computer Graphics & Animation 11

Course code: YCCT-1AX

Get animated! In the 2D-focused courses students work in-depth with Adobe Flash to explore and create a variety of animation styles including motion graphics, kinetic typography, web site animation, and character animation. In character animation students develop a complete rig and apply the fundamental principles of animation to develop convincing movements like head turns, walk cycles and speech. If you think you’re interested in animation, this is a great place to explore and try it out. For the more serious animator, it’s a great place to hone your skills and develop your portfolio.
In the 3D-focussed courses, students use Blender 3D modeling and animation software to develop and bring to life 3D creatures and contraptions and set them in a 3D world. It’s a lot to learn, it’s not easy and patience is required. But if you’re keen to learn how models and animations are created for 3D movies and video games, this is the course. There are many game and animation studios waiting to hire skilled, creative 3D modellers and animators.
