Work on display: Animation
Animation is a narrative-driven course focussing on characters and storytelling. Accordingly, this year’s graduands have produced a rich array of short films and showreels that showcase their abilities across these and other skills.
There is a strong tendency toward hand-drawn animation at this year, with the majority of work being produced through this method as opposed to 3D animation. From sci-fi to horror, seriousness to humour, a wide array of genres, styles, subjects and techniques have been covered by the class of 2020.
We echo commercial practice as closely as possible. This means the course is constantly evolving to reflect an ever-changing industry that constantly requires graduates able to work new processes and software. With graduate credits in Game of Thrones, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and the Disney Channel, our course is recognised for graduates who have the skills employers need.
Over the past four years, our graduands have learned to work to briefs and about professional production practices within a variety of specialisms. During their final year with us, students work collaboratively to create a short animated film. Each student within the project will focus on two specific skills, such as storyboarding, animation or character design, and produce a showreel or portfolio to demonstrate their abilities to potential employers.
I would encourage everyone to take some time to browse through the wonderful short films and showreels they have produced and learn something of the creative development behind the final product.
