Are you interested in exploring new ways of communicating through visual storytelling?

Do you want to extend your creative skills in the digital domain?

The MSc Animation & VFX at DJCAD is an exciting Masters course which allows a much broader interpretation of traditional animation. Digital animation techniques have allowed us to visualise the world around us from the farthest reaches of space to the darkest depths of the oceans. Check out the showreels below to see some of the class of 2014's excellent work. 

With the increasing appetite for fantastic stories and images there has never been a better opportunity for animators, artists and designers to develop new ways of communicating different stories. Using 2-D and 3-D computer animation, practitioners are shaping our knowledge and understanding in areas as diverse as digital visual effects, medical imaging, architecture, environmental design, product design and film making.

The Mill  "We’ve been building a relationship with DJCAD over the last few years. This culminated in the ‘going live’ module with the masters students where we gave the guys a live TV commercial brief. The students this year did a brilliant job and we’ve been impressed by the quality and professionalism of graduates coming from the courses in DJCAD!" Tom Walter, Operations Manager at The Mill
