Course overview: This degree includes an integrated foundation year if you don’t have the appropriate subjects and/or grades for direct entry to 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 filmmaking. Our students 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.
