BA (Hons) coursesAnimation Production

Course Overview

Animation is everywhere, from the classic Disney fairytale to the quirky Aardman comedy and the dynamic Pixar blockbuster.

But it starts right here with traditional 2D animation drawing, where fundamental skills of drawing and painting underpin the development of animation production in all its forms: hand-drawn, stop-motion and CGI.

Our illustrious alumni at Pixar, Lucasarts and Aardman testify to the success of our Creative Skillset accredited curriculum and production-based environment. Students work together in teams to develop their personal portfolios and produce award-winning graduate films.

Visiting industry practitioners and opportunities for industry placements prepare the aspiring animater to enter a professional world of film, commercials and video games production.

We’ll give you skills to shape the future of the industry. The animation revolution starts here – Join the Movement!
