Bachelor of Animation

Griffith University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00233E

This program will prepare students for a career in the animation and visual effects industries. The theoretical and practical skills that are essential to these career paths are comprehensively covered through majors in Character Animating, Art Direction and Technical Direction. Using top of the line hardware and premium, industry-recognised software, students will produce original animated films from script to screen. In doing so, students will learn skills in concept development, storyboarding, 2D and 3D character animation, editing, sound recording, visual effects and post-production. Students will also develop the ability to work out the most appropriate animation format for specific projects - traditional drawn animation, 2D, 3D and motion-captured digital animation, 3D puppet or clay animation and other experimental media. The academic studies will be extended by studio subjects and engagement with industry production, which will enable students to gain first-hand experience. Students will work alongside film and screen media production and games design students to complete community projects and have opportunities to collaborate with students from the Queensland Conservatorium.
