Animation Short Course Starts 27 February 2017

We're taking applicants for our next animation short course - three months of intensive training in 3D animation - starting in February 2017.  This course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn the art and craft of 3D Animation in Maya. You might be a 2D animator wanting to break into 3D, or a graduate who didn’t get the right skills at university – or someone with no experience of animation who wants to make a career change. We teach all our students from scratch, and our goal is to make you job-ready by the end of the course.

What's this course all about?
We take you through all the essential principles of animation from the very beginning – bouncing a ball – through to sophisticated character and creature animation. We begin with the basics of motion and locomotion, building up to pantomime, character performance, and also tackling animals and creatures.

London has a strong focus on visual effects work and we want our students to be able to tackle the challenges and opportunities in our local market. By the end of the course you should have a polished video portfolio in the shape of an online demo reel to help you find work in this growing but competitive industry.

Who teaches the course?

I do - I've been teaching animation for 25 years, and I have polished and refined my program both online and in the classroom. I have worked on around 40 anmated films including The Lion King, The Iron Giant, and the last three Harry Potter films.

What are the Career opportunities?
Our students go on to work in many areas of the industry including 3D animation for films, TV, games, and visual effects. After the classroom course is over we offer three months of online mentoring, so that our students can continue to refine and polish their schools. We take aftercare very seriously – since it can take time to put together a job-ready demo reel, we make sure our students get the time and practice that they need to refine their work to make them job-ready.
