Animation is a fantastically diverse medium, and its possibilities are expanding continually. Animators are dealing with new platforms for delivery, new technologies for production and new audiences as the theories and contexts of animation are being developed and understood.
Animation has become an integral element of most feature production through VFX pipelines, documentary production through the use of data visualisation and improved compositing techniques, and a vital part of any interactive production.
In order to address the wide range of potential interests within the discipline of animation, the courses are non-prescriptive in terms of methodology and output and take advantage of extensive classical and digital technical resources.
Normally a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent, in animation or film.
