BA (Hons) Animation Production alumnus, Abby Austin, has secured a place at Aardman Academy.

Abby graduated in 2015 and has now started on the Certificate in Character Animation course, which trains a selection of talented and enthusiastic new students to meet the growing demand for animators in the UK.

The 12-week intensive course takes place at the Bristol headquarters of Aardman, providing students with the core practical skills needed to become professional animators.

The students will partake in a variety of masterclasses and workshops, designed by Aardman’s film making experts.

Abby tells us more:

“The AUB Animation Production course was the best thing I could have done. It made sure I was well prepared and had the necessary skills needed to succeed in my chosen career. I completed 3 placements at Aardman and 1 at Framestore via AUB before I started the course with NFTS due to the course’s fantastic industry connections.”
