We offer students the opportunity to explore new media techniques and experiment with interactive design, illustration, comic book art and concept art in a custom built environment with extensive state of the art technologies. Students develop their drawing and design skills to create 2D and 3D computer, as well as, traditional animation techniques. They create their own
sets, develop their own characters and storyboards and even learn how to design and implement their games concepts. The course also offers an enhancement in radio production.
All this is backed by a sound grounding in direction, producing, editing, camera wok, script writing, lighting and sound, utilising a wide range of TV and video equipment. Students also benefit from being taught by industry professionals, being entered into the Royal Television Society Awards (where we have previously won ‘Best Animation’) and producing real work for real
clients on this exciting, well equipped, successful grade one course.
