3D Animation Summer School
Following an introduction to the history of 3D animation you will be set a project to develop a character and narrative. Your time will be split between working in the animation studio on your project, and hearing from guest speakers or visiting places of interest that inspire professional animators.
Tutor are drawn from the BA (Hons) Animation course at NTU.
This course is aimed at animators of the future.
You will combine new idea generation and research skills with your knowledge of Maya software so that, by the end of the two weeks, you will have a character to present to your fellow students. You will also have an understanding of the different types of jobs available to you in the animation, gaming and visual effects industries, and the knowledge of what a company like Pixar looks for in a CV.
Upon successful completion you will receive a certificate of attendance. If you wish to receive credit you will need to arrange this with your faculty at home before you attend. NTU can supply module specifications to assist in calculating a credit equivalency.
