Course overview: This course includes an integrated foundation year, ideal if you don’t have the appropriate subjects and/or grades to go straight into year one. If you want a career in 2D and stop motion for film and TV, then this is the course for you. You will develop the skills to work in the animated film and TV industry as a 2D artist, animator, stop motion artist, model maker, CG modeller, and compositor in animation. Studios such as Aardman Animations and LAIKA are at the forefront of using a combination of 2D, stop motion and computer generated techniques including 3D printing, which herald a new era in animated film making. You will benefit from an amazing learning environment, taking advantage of our many specialist studios, bringing all the new technologies together in the creation and transformation of what is traditionally known as 2D animation. After the course: You are encouraged to think about your future career from the outset. We have a number of events that develop your employability: our ExpoSeries is integral to your course and is an opportunity for you to interact with employers at each level of your course via ExpoTential at the end of the first year, ExpoTalent at the end of the second year and ExpoTees at the end of the third year. Each event is open to the public and has invited industry guests, ensuring that you have the opportunity to showcase your work to peers, the public and potential future placements or employers at regular intervals throughout each level of your studies.
