Course Description

This degree will prepare you for a career in the animation and visual effects
industries. The theoretical and practical skills that are essential to these
career paths are comprehensively covered through majors in Character
Animating, Art Direction and Technical Direction. Using top of the line
hardware and premium, industry-recognised software, you will produce
original animated films from script to screen. In doing so, you will learn skills
in concept development, storyboarding, 2D and 3D character animation,
editing, sound recording, visual effects and post-production.
You will also develop the ability to work out the most appropriate animation
format for specific projects - traditional drawn animation, 2D, 3D and
motion-captured digital animation, 3D puppet or clay animation and other
experimental media. Your academic studies will be extended by studio
courses and engagement with industry production, which will enable you
to gain first-hand experience.
You will work alongside film and screen media production and games design
students to complete community projects and have opportunities to
collaborate with students from the Queensland Conservatorium.
