Our Animation students engage with a range of animation practices including traditional methods of filmmaking through to the latest industry-facing technology. With a focus on character, performance and short-form storytelling we prepare you for the vibrant and innovative world of the moving image industries. The thrill of creating the ‘illusion of life’ is always a rewarding one. If you love the thought of giving life to inanimate objects using 2D, 3D and stop motion animation - whether they are hand drawn pictures, a stop motion puppet, CGI models or found objects – this course could be for you. With a score of 100% student satisfaction in the National Students Survey 2016, we pride ourselves on creating a professional and commercial studio environment in which our students can flourish. Graduates from our Animation degree have moved into a diverse range of careers within animation and film. Many are employed by international studios such as Brown Bag Films, Boulder Media, Aardman Feature Animation, Blinkink, NOMINT, Mackinnon & Saunders, Cosgrove Hall Films, FWD, Ragdoll Productions, Double Negative and Cinesite. Our animation course is well represented at annual animation festivals and competitions, both in the UK and overseas.
